Mother with Three Children Reunited with Family
While Campus adaptations to CDC guidelines for serving safely through COVID-19 are challenging, they are not stopping us from reunifying people with family, friends, and support networks. One recent example includes a family of four.

A mother who wishes to remain anonymous came into the Brian Garcia Welcome Center with three children seeking help getting back to family in Oklahoma. She had lost her apartment, could no longer stay with friends, and she was referred to the Human Services Campus. HSC Staff contacted her cousin, confirmed housing was available to the family, and purchased tickets for the four of them to return to safe, stable housing.

Over the past year, with assistance from HSC Staff and our "diversion" program, 86% of the individuals who were reunited with family did not return to homelessness. With our staff's time spent on assessing and ensuring that reunification is a good option, plus the cost of transportation (e.g. bus tickets), diversions continue to the fastest, most economical and effective means to end an individual's homelessness, whether across town or across the country. Thank you to all of our supporters who help make this happen!
