Located near Shelby Forest, the Intact Homeless Family Program provides short-term transitional housing for homeless families.
This unique ministry allows Memphis Union Mission to minister to families as they reside in a fully-furnished three-bedroom home for three to six months.
During this time, the family is allowed to stay without paying for rent or utilities as they work and save enough money to regain self-sufficiency. Moreover, the families attend Bible studies and receive counseling on both spiritual and practical matters, including financial management.
The program can accommodate families with or without children, but couples must be legally married. The program cannot accommodate single-parent families.
Families must have their own means of transportation since the homes are not located near a MATA bus line.
