Supportive Family Services (SFS), was formed in 2020 to provide holistic support to families who are unhoused or experiencing housing instability through classes, peer support, and skill-building. The Supportive Family Services program performs a range of activities that strengthen Alaskan families staying at Clare House or connected through Coordinated Entry. Services are designed to address housing instability and offer opportunities for all members of the family to build assets related to social and emotional wellbeing. The program also provides reunification services and resources to families who we have facilitated an adoption plan with previously.

In FY23, 240 individuals benefited from Supportive Family Services housing case management.
