Help with housing
(or things for your home)
Whether you already have a safe place to stay or are looking for one, we can help you create a happy, healthy home for yourself (and your kids if you have any). If you’re homeless or need to leave your current situation, we’re here for you.
Find or train for a job
Embrace can help you find work, prepare for employment, and get on the path to the career of your dreams. We can also assist you in creating a budget, learning how to manage your money, or figuring out transportation.
Education and waiver support
If you want to work toward your GED, trade certification, or college degree we can help you apply, find financial aid, and use your tuition waiver (if this applies to you).
Pregnant, parenting, or planning a family?
Whether you are pregnant, already have a child, or want to start a family soon, we can help you get all those “baby basics” like a crib and car seat. Embrace can also connect you with resources for childcare, mentoring, and housing.
Preparing to leave foster care
Becoming an adult is an exciting time that can feel scary, thrilling, wonderful, and overwhelming. Embrace can help you as you make plans for what’s next. You don’t have to face all of these big changes alone.
Just need someone to listen?
Sometimes you just need someone to listen. To help you sort through options and make the right choice. To walk, guide, and pray with you. Embrace is here. Even if you’re not sure what you need.
