The Family Stability team works in collaboration with United Way and Howard County Government to prevent homelessness by providing services to lift families out of crisis and help them move towards self-sufficiency. Family Stability Case Managers advocate for families who are at risk of losing permanent housing and develop a plan to maintain long term stable housing. Case Managers also work with school personnel to reduce student mobility and provide opportunities for children to continue to thrive in their current school. Springboard provides limited financial assistance to help families avoid eviction. Families must have at least one school aged child and meet income guidelines in order to qualify for this program.
