Homeless Services for Families:
The HomeLight Family Living program applies The Midnight Missions proven approach to homeless services to help families get the support they need to get back on their feet and stay healthy. With a strong emphasis on achieving self-sufficiency through accountability, our families are given the opportunity to live in a clean, safe, learning-focused environment, empowering them to create a new life for themselves and their children.
The Midnight Mission established its Family Living program all the way back in 1994 as a response to substantial increases in homeless families. Today, the HomeLight Family Living Program consists of 11 renovated, fully-furnished apartments located in a safe area of Los Angeles, providing a haven for unhoused families to build a new life. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, HomeLight offers not only a safe residence, but a comprehensive path to building a healthy, happy, and self-sufficient life for families shattered by abuse, addiction, poverty, and homelessness.
HomeLight offers support to the most vulnerable members of our community, giving victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and those dealing with issues of sobriety and other unthinkable circumstances the space, time, support, and accountability to build a new life together. Families who are accepted into HomeLight typically live with us for one year, providing them the time to stabilize and plan while moving forward in a structured environment. Family members receive individualized plans for their transition to independent living that include mental health therapy, job preparedness, and family reunification.
