Our House

Our House Offers Hope to the Working Homeless

Arkansas is at the epicenter of a nationwide epidemic of family homelessness, and ProFinder USA is partnering with a one-of-a-kind organization, Our House, to do something about it. Our House is pioneering a "two-generation approach" to empowering struggling families to overcome homelessness, build a better life for themselves, and break the cycle of poverty. Our House serves more than 1,800 people each year, providing housing, job training, early childhood education, out-of-school-time programming, case management and much more to help each family overcome their specific barriers to self-sufficiency. This approach yields dramatic, measurable positive impacts in the lives of the families served. Our House helped 499 homeless adults find full-time jobs in the past year (with 288 different employers); 70% of clients moved out of homelessness upon exit; and 95% of near-homeless clients avoided homelessness. Our House's success has been recognized nationally, with features by NBC News, USA Today, and PBS Newshour.

As we help to build the capacity of the home improvement sector, we at ProFinder USA are proud to partner with an organization that is working to make sure everyone has a place to call home. That's why we are donating $2 for every paid listing to Our House to support their work to empower homeless families.
