Ben Richey Family Program exists to restore single mothers and their children with hope, comfort, and shelter while they locate resources they need to move toward successful independent living.
Relief and assistance are provided to single mothers from all walks of life so they can focus on resolving their individual crises and temporary family instability. While the mother works toward setting goals with the guidance of dedicated and supportive staff, she lives in a comfortable residential setting with her children.
Mothers and their children live in shared homes with private bedrooms and bathrooms that are assigned to their families. Mothers in the Program diligently work towards learning appropriate money management skills, parenting skills, job skills, and other areas of their lives in which their individual families need help. It is the goal of the Family Program that when the mother leaves our Program, she is able to support herself and her child(ren) without help from someone else.
