Who is Aurora@Home for?
While A@H is Aurora’s Collaborative Plan to address homelessness, the A@H program is focused on families with dependent children who are homeless or who are at-risk of becoming homeless. The primary purpose of the project: A@H is designed to place homeless families into affordable housing in an expedited manner. This then gives the family a level of initial stability. Once the family is in an affordable unit, the parent and case worker for the project will develop a case plan of wrap around services which will help ensure long term stability.
