Down Home serves families in Cass County, North Dakota, and Clay County, Minnesota, who are transitioning from homelessness into housing. Down Home works with community agencies to refer families who qualify for Down Home's service. Down Home works closely with the referral agency and the client in preparation and anticipation of the move in date. Down home gathers all the necessary items to transform an empty space into a home to embrace, well suited for family security, comfort, and time together. Each client creates a Pay It Forward Plan to be involved in the community and continue to make connections for success. Down Home is empowering lives one home at a time.
During the first year after the reveal, Down Home remains in communication with each family. Every family served over the year is invited to our Down Home Christmas celebration in December. Families experience the sites, smells, activities, and laughter of the joyful season, and they even get to go home with a tree package. Down Home is committed to continuing the empowerment of family security and involvement in the community.
