Hamilton Family Center works to transition more than 300 families into permanent housing every year and prevent its clients from becoming homeless with a comprehensive array of housing solutions and support services. The organization places families with sustainable income into permanent housing and provides shallow-rent subsidies and support services to help them achieve stability. Furnishings help turn the new houses into livable spaces, and monthly food boxes, job training, health screenings, financial-literacy coaching, and afterschool activities for children foster a community atmosphere and encourage personal advancement. After placement, case managers and family therapists work with the families to maintain their housing situations and rebuild their lives.

This summer, Opportunity Impact is scheduled to move into a parks and recreation center that features tennis and basketball courts as well as ample outdoor space. The organization still needs basic sports equipment, including balls, gear, and bats, for a life-skills program that would help participants develop cooperation, strategy building, and problem-solving skills through organized team sports. This holistic approach builds on students' ability to tackle daily challenges by highlighting individual assets and rebuilding confidence. The network of support they build out of their experiences with Opportunity Impact can help at-risk youths to succeed in school and fully engage with their communities as adults.
