Parents who have lost custody of their children CPS and are working towards reunification.

🏡 What is the Family Unification Program (FUP)?

The Family Unification Program (FUP) is a specialized housing assistance program designed to prevent family separation due to lack of housing. It is a part of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program and provides both housing assistance and supportive services to eligible families.

🤝 How does FUP help families?

FUP aims to support families facing the risk of separation by providing them with stable and affordable housing. It can assist families who are involved with Child Protective Services (CPS) and are at risk of having their children removed from their care due to inadequate housing. FUP can also help parents who have lost custody of their children and are working towards reunification.

💼 What does FUP offer?

Under the Family Unification Program, eligible families receive housing vouchers that can be used to rent privately-owned housing. These vouchers cover a portion of the family's rent, making it more affordable. In addition to housing assistance, FUP also offers supportive services, such as case management, counseling, and referrals to other community resources. These services aim to address the underlying issues that may contribute to the risk of family separation.
