“UMOM is a very respectful, empowering place to be.” – Jena
It’s getting increasingly difficult for families in Jena’s situation to find an affordable place to live and virtually impossible to do so on minimum wage. At UMOM, we operate 500 affordable housing units and are building and opening two new complexes in the next two years, but the number of people in our community who need a low-cost apartment far exceeds available units. The only solution to ending homelessness is building more housing that is financially accessible to people with lower incomes.
Please join us in our mission to prevent and end homelessness with our comprehensive programs and services that help families, single women and youth find a path to a more stable life with well-paying jobs and permanent housing they can afford.
