Our Impact

UESF’s goal is always housing stabilization. We do more than give people a hand up. We work with them to understand the barriers that are keeping them from housing stability and empower them to move forward. We address immediate needs with benefits and supportive services in the short-term to keep families in their homes. UESF then achieves stabilization in the long term through education, self-sufficiency training, and ongoing case management.
