Family homelessness is first and foremost a poverty issue that disproportionately affects children. Building upon the immediate need for providing basic shelter, Homes for the Homeless has enriched our services to provide wraparound support through community and other collaborations to ensure families are empowered and provided opportunities to achieve well-being and self-sufficiency. Homes for the Homeless has adopted a family-based, child-centered, education-focused approach to its programming that aims to break the cycle of poverty, foster positive identities, and promote future success while allowing kids to grow, experience, and learn as kids do. Our Summer Camps offer a welcome opportunity for children to engage in fun, healthy, and educational activities. Camps Lanowa and Wakonda are unique experiences that offer a true, traditional summer camp atmosphere, and are nationally accredited by the American Camps Association. Summer Camp often provides many first-time experiences for our campers, while simultaneously providing parents the chance to focus on their own progress and goals knowing their children are in caring hands.
