Who We Are
Elijah Family Homes (EFH) is a 501(c)(3) organization that works to create an inclusive environment for staff, volunteers, and clients of all of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion or creed, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, and veteran or active duty status. Elijah Family Homes believes all individuals are worthy, valuable, and deserving of respect and services.
We aim to ensure that all families with children in Benton and Franklin Counties, regardless of substance abuse history, are given the opportunity to make unique and valuable contributions to the community while being self-sufficient and stably housed.
Elijah Family Homes supports self-sufficiency through stable-housing and case management services by administering two programs:
- The Transition to Success (TTS) program provides families safe, stable, affordable housing and supportive services in the form of highly individualized case management for up to 3 years. These services are provided without regard to race, religion, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability. The TTS program works with low-income families who don’t qualify for public housing due to their past, including felonies and drug abuse. It is a three-year endeavor with the first year’s focus being on basic life skills, while in years two and three the clients are being directed in goal setting, job skills development, personal finance, and transitional skills for self-sufficiency.
- The Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP) serves women who used substances during pregnancy. The primary goal of PCAP is to prevent future births of alcohol or drug exposed children. It is also a three-year endeavor with the first year’s focus being on basic life skills, while in years two and three the clients are being directed in goal setting, job skills development, and transitional skills for self-sufficiency. The program also focuses on improving parenting skills, maintaining a home, and personal finance.
