Home Start

*Funds raised from the Realtor Games will support these youth and set them up on a path to self-sufficiency.  Your funds will help provide the security deposits, titrated rental assistance, bus transportation passes, gas cards, and grocery or department store gift cards expenses not covered by government funding to help the youth stay housed, make ends meet, travel to work or school, have fresh food, etc. Ultimately you will help them break free from the cycles of homelessness, abuse, poverty, and neglect.

For 50 years, Home Start staff have served on the front lines in the battle to protect vulnerable children from abuse by strengthening families and their communities.  To effectively prevent and treat child abuse, they address conditions that put children in risky or abusive situations such as homelessness, hunger, poverty, unsafe neighborhoods, lack of safe/affordable housing, & unemployment. They also focus on individual self-sufficiency and emotional needs to break the cycle of families remaining in poverty or abusive situations.

In any given year, the families, youth, and children Home Start serves are on the brink of crisis or just recovering from extremely challenging circumstances.  The added stressors caused by the impact of COVID-19, including the housing crisis, increased domestic violence, and inflation, has been particularly devastating for the low-income families in their care.
