The Homeless Families Foundation is a homeless families’ service provider in Columbus, Ohio. Programs include housing assistance, holistic Case Management, and a children’s education center (Dowd Education Center) for afterschool and summer tutoring and enrichment for children in kindergarten through middle school. It operates as a Housing First agency: most families, with some help, are capable of living independently and can best work to address their issues when they are in a stable, long-term home environment.

Celebrate National Canned Food Month!

Celebrate National Canned Food Month!

Help nourish neighbors experiencing homelessness

Date: February 28 | Time: 11:50 pm - 11:51 pm

Venue: Homeless Families Foundation

Address:
33 N Grubb St.

The Homeless Families Foundation educates and nurtures children while empowering families to achieve stable housing and self-sufficiency. The Homeless Families Foundation provides wrap-around services, such as after-school and summer programs for over 100 Franklinton children and a food pantry available to all clients, to celebrate each person’s resilience.

 

February is National Canned Food Month! Canned foods offer families experiencing food insecurity an easy way to get the nutrients to keep them healthy. As a staple of many pantries, canned foods are convenient, nutritious, and have a long shelf life.
