Bridges To Success

Bridges To Success, a nationally accredited program, provides permanent supportive housing for families in Royal Palm Beach and the Glades area of Palm Beach County. Families enrolled in this program have been diagnosed with a medical or psychological disability that impairs their ability to be self-sufficient. Once housing is secured, we work with families and other organizations to help them on their path to self-sufficiency.

Project Outcomes

In 2022, Families First provided 10 families, Including 16 children and 18 adults, with safe and stable homes.

100% of the families maintained a safe and functional living space and permanent housing for the year. 80% of families maintained income including wages and/or benefits.

Cost Savings: Homeless Services: $38,750 Yearly; Permanent Supportive House: $20,000; Savings: $18,750 Per Family.

This program was reaccredited with the Council on Accreditation in 2020.

Thank you!

“I wanted to first say thank you to Families First for helping me in 2011 when I was about to be homeless. At that time, I was very sick with a heart issue and could not work. Through the program, they took away the stress of not having a place for me and my three children so I could concentrate on getting healthier and being able to become independent again. Families First had several programs that helped me to be more stable. I still have heart issues, but I was able to find a work-from-home job and soon was able to buy my very first home. Families first is a blessing for me! I went from homeless and a credit score of 450 to buying my very first home and a 760-credit score. Thank you so much!”
