Another entry point to FPL for a family is Program 515.
The first year Family Promise began recording the number of calls received, five hundred and fifteen families inquired. This is where the program gets its name.
The only difference between P515 and the Rotation Program is that the families remained sheltered where ever they are such as motels, other shelters, with friends & family, camping, or couch surfing.
P515 families have access to the all of the same program and facility resources during the day.
There are a few different program options within P515, including:
- Community Housing Connections (CHC) – a landlord referral prevention of homelessness program
- Diversion – Helping a family through case management supports to be diverted from the sheltering system
- New Horizons – (NH) Housing readiness and case management supports for homeless families being sheltered at Lawrence Community Shelter through a partnership with the Lawrence Douglas County Housing Authority and funding through the City of Lawrence Affordable Housing Trust Fund, and Douglas County for voucher awards
