Families can stay in the Family Emergency Efficiencies from 2 weeks to 3 months. The program offers free childcare while parents are working. A professional case manager works with residents to establish goals and a family case plan. Those who follow the rules and meet their goals can stay enrolled up to 3 months, applying for extensions every 2 weeks.
The Emergency Efficiencies at The George W. Jenkins Community of Hope has expanded capacity from 14 families to housing 20 families in motel-like efficiency units. The Efficiencies are expected to serve 120 families per year, with most of those families moving into a transitional program or a place of their own.
