Homelessness and Affordable Housing Strengthening Children and Families

Providing consistent funding to develop support systems for children and families is a key focus area of Community Foundation and donor grants. Developing strategies that address critical human needs issues such as homelessness, affordable housing and poverty ensure safe places and opportunity for all in our community. “The Community Foundation’s long-term commitment to housing and eliminating homelessness in Greater Des Moines allows nonprofit organizations to give families and individuals in need access to housing and to services such as case management, counseling, crisis intervention and advocacy, which are designed to stabilize families and help them become self-sufficient.� Eric Burmeister Executive Director Polk County Housing Trust Fund
