Homeless Children and Young Adults
The Presbyterian Home for Children serves children, families, and young adults who seek healing and hope for their troubled lives.
The Moderate Care Residential Therapeutic Program serves adolescents age 13-17 who have been removed from their homes by the Alabama Department of Human Resources due to abuse and/or neglect and who have emotional and behavioral management problems that interfere with their ability to function in a family or community setting.
Transition to Adult Living
The Transition to Adult Living program helps young women ages 19-24 who are facing challenges and difficult times of transition by providing a safe residential environment in which they can grow, increase life skills, and achieve self-sufficiency.
The Secure Dwellings Program is a program providing safe and affordable housing on the PHFC campus to homeless children and their female caregiver while our dedicated staff works to minister to their needs by empowering the caregiver to achieve goals and reach self-sufficiency and providing a safe haven for children who have been homeless to rest, grow, and play.
When a child is homeless or living in a dysfunctional situation their education is often among the first casualties. Continually failing or struggling does even more damage to an already wounded child. Many of the children we serve have fallen behind in school and are fighting to catch up. Ascension Leadership Academy, our accredited private school, does everything in its power to help children succeed academically.
