Elijah Family Homes supports self-sufficiency for those seeking recovery through stable-housing and case management services. We administer two programs: Transition to Success (TTS) and the Parent Child Assistance Program (PCAP), serving Benton and Franklin Counties. Both EFH programs are three-year endeavors with the focus of the first year 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 independence.
