A father, came to YSI’s Crittenton Support Center for Family Based Services seeking resources and support for housing for his family. He is the father of a 5 year-old and a 6 month-old with special needs which has created financial insecurities as well. YSI has been able to help this family by connecting him to their parenting classes, counseling and secure Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to provide additional financial support for the special needs child.
