Housing & Homeless Services

Family Service League’s housing programs focus on providing emergency housing and supportive services to chronically homeless individuals and families throughout Suffolk county. Homelessness is often the result of a disability, mental illness or substance abuse, and it can be a daunting task to overcome the effects of these crippling conditions while attempting to become self-sufficient. We’re here to help.

Offering emergency housing services to homeless families placed through the Suffolk County Department of Social Services, the program accommodates homeless families with a safe environment and the support needed to secure permanent housing.
