Growing Home recently had a visit by a family that, years ago, had taken part in numerous Growing Home services. This family originally came to Growing Home in crisis, seeking supplemental food and housing assistance. Once they were stabilized through these supports, they began taking Incredible Years parenting classes. The mother first took this class series by herself, and then she and her husband took the series together a few months later. During their shared Incredible Years classes they learned they were going to have another child and immediately enrolled in our Parents as Teachers home visitation service. Through PAT they learned valuable skills on how to give their children the best possible start for their education. During their time in the Parents as Teachers program they also learned about our Collaborative Coaching evidence-based case management program, which they enrolled in. Working with their case manager, Joy, this family worked to set manageable goals to reach their desired outcomes. During this process, they realized they lacked solid support networks in Colorado, and that there would be better-paying job opportunities back in their home state of Texas. They set a goal of moving back to Texas and buying a house, and created a path of steps to follow to make this huge goal happen. They began reaching out to family and friends back in Texas to inquire about jobs and housing, with support from their coach, and a few months later they made their move. Today, this family – a family that was on the verge of homelessness three years ago – owns their own home, and the husband has a stable job as a commercial truck driver. He recently accepted an opportunity to work with the USDA’s Community Food Access Program, delivering loads of food to nonprofits and food banks for distribution to families in need. During their visit, he told Joy that this job was like a calling for him, because it was a chance to pay forward the help they received from Growing Home.
