Designed as a supportive community in which single parents can move to economic independence and families can thrive. Its relatively small size-22 apartments-facilitates close personal interactions. Its programs are planned to nurture families as they build skills. Child care and mentoring are available on site, and life skills management workshops, meetings and resource and referral services allow residents to explore their problems in depth and then move forward. A staff of 20 is employed to provide its services, including childcare and building security.
