SERVICES FOR WCRP TENANTS
Even with a permanent home, women and families often face difficult challenges. WCRP believes in encouraging families to trust their ability to overcome barriers and as such, we provide supportive services to help our families build a better life.
WCRP provides comprehensive services to help families achieve personal, financial and family goals. By building long-term, trusting relationships with WCRP families, we encourage each individual to find and follow her own path to success.
The types of support WCRP’s Supportive Services program offers families include:
Resolve family emergencies and crises quickly and with compassion
Find training, education and employment opportunities to increase economic security
Strengthen their ability to nurture and care for themselves
Access services and programs that serve low-income women and families
Build strong and supportive community that enhances the quality of life
Connect with meaningful leadership opportunities such as participating on WCRP’s Board, Committees, campaigns and neighborhood activities
Understand their rights and responsibilities as tenants and support them in resolving property management issues
A NETWORK OF SUPPORT
Once a family has moved into one of our housing developments, WCRP’s Supportive Services staff works with them to create a realistic plan to reach self-defined goals. Without judgment, we encourage each tenant to achieve their goals by identifying appropriate resources and offering counseling, referrals and support.
We maintain a comprehensive network of resources - over 200 agencies – to refer our families to the high quality service providers they need. WCRP also has its own emergency fund, The Karen Donnally Family Emergency Fund, for families facing personal crises that may require more immediate attention.
