It is significant to note that as the 2023-24 school year begins there are 26 homeless families in the Stoughton school district that include 50 children, with 5 of those considered unaccompanied. “Unaccompanied” means they have no adult looking after them.

Our STEP FORWARD program is designed to assist individuals or families achieve housing and increased self-sufficiency. To accomplish these goals, the STEP FORWARD program will secure safe and affordable “rental” housing for a maximum of 24 months. Additionally, it provides case management services through Stoughton Area Resource Team (START) and the Senior Center, including advocacy, support, and access to other resources.

We are open and willing to deepen your understanding of HATS with a brief presentation on STEP FORWARD that lasts about 15 minutes to a half hour with discussion. More importantly, we are looking for more landlords willing to offer one space for a family with secured rental payments for 24 months. We would be grateful and proud to share this resource with you.
