In 2012 Future in Humanity joined the Fullerton Homeless Collaborative, working with other agencies in our local community to battle homelessness. Through this collaborative we recognized that there were a great number of clients receiving duplicated services from different organization participating in the collaborative. In an effort to help work collaboratively with non-federal funded organization we developed a shared database for organizations to input client information, track client progress, and see what other agencies are working with the same client. The goal for the database is to reduce duplicated services, simplify collaboration, and alleviate the stress of producing program reports. Our database is now available for organizations across the United States and is compliant with HUD standards. Our database is great for start up agencies and organizations that are looking for a more effective way to track client information and produce accurate reports for funders and board of directors.
Future in Humanity understands the challenge of non profit organizations and students wanting to figure out how to best serve the homeless. Many are underfunded and lack the time to go to community forums and trainings. That is why we have created an online training program and for just $99 you can take your skills and services to the next level.
Major topics covered by our training include:
Often times people fall into homelessness because they lack a reliable support system that can help them while they transition back into stability. Future in Humanity provides mentorship and guidance for people who have fallen into hard time through our Friendship Program. Volunteers and case managers partners with shelters, food banks, city departments and other homeless service providers to offer resource referrals and ongoing support to people transitioning out of homelessness and into housing. The experience of homelessness causes severe stress and depression often making it difficult for people to plan past meeting their basic needs. Our program is designed to help people set goals, identify resources and provide financial assistance to make livable income and permanent housing attainable.
