Empowering families to overcome obstacles is challenging. At Inn from the Cold, we understand that each family is unique and faces different circumstances and that this diversity adds to the complexity of their needs. With this in mind, we work closely with each family to create a personalized plan that addresses their needs and helps them build the skills necessary for long-term stability, well-being, and resilience. We also strive to apply a culturally diverse lens and Indigenous worldview to our support, recognizing the diversity of the families we serve.
Our programs are focused on promoting the well-being of children, youth, and families, aiming to break the cycle of homelessness. Family poverty, conflict, breakdown, and abuse can cause trauma and contribute to child and youth homelessness, and childhood homelessness has been linked to chronic and multi-generational homelessness.
At Inn from the Cold, we believe in investing in families and providing them with the programs and support necessary to lift them out of poverty and housing instability, ultimately breaking the cycle of family homelessness. By prioritizing the mental, social, and physical well-being of families and their children, we are confident that we can positively impact their lives.
