Shelters like Upward Bound House work to help get people off of the streets and provide them with housing. Upward Bound House has helped over 800 families transition from homelessness to permanent housing since it was founded in 1991.
The main goal of the shelter is to get homeless families with underage children off of the streets. "The idea is to have everybody self-sufficient in a certain amount of time," according to Booker Pearson, co-founder of Upward Bound House. The shelter has established various programs that provide financial assistance so that the families can obtain stable housing. Currently, the shelter serves about 200 people everyday, people of all ages and from many different walks of life.
