Families Forward: Transitional Housing Program is a collaboration initiative between United Way of Midland and Family Promise. In 2013, United Way of Midland committed one million dollars to the program which aims to break the cycle of generational poverty by moving families from homelessness to permanent housing. 19 families, consisting of 30 adults and 68 children, have now been served through the Families Forward Transitional Housing Program. Thirteen of those families have graduated from the program and are now working on home ownership or rent based secure living.
On April 18, 2019, United Way of Midland’s Board of Directors released the deed of ownership of the properties to Family Promise for its continued use in the same program.
