If you give a man a fish,
he will eat for a day.

If you teach a man to fish,
he will eat for a lifetime.

• privately funded, receiving no government funding.
• a 90-day program designed to move families from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
• a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) agency supported by the Northland Community.
• a cost-effective, volunteer-supported program in the Northland area which houses approximately 40 families per year.

3) Nutrition - residents learn about the purchase and preparation of food with concern for nutrition and economy.
4) Community living - group sessions on how to live in a community and be a responsible, efficient participant.
