The Mission of the Residential Assistance to Families in Transition (RAFT) Program is to provide a structured residential program which include the resources and services to empower families to rebuild their lives.

The Vision of RAFT is guiding homeless families to a stable future.

What does RAFT do?

RAFT's program is not hand-out, but it does provide a helping hand to those who are actively working toward becoming stable. RAFT offers temporary residence in its five-apartment facility so that families have a chance to get back on their feet. During their stay, families are required to develop an individualized service plan which consists of goals and appropriate steps to attain permanent stability. The plan includes a requirement for all adults to work and/or attend training for a total of 40 hours per week. Typical plans also include mental health counseling, parenting classes, and involvement in various support groups available in the Kearney area. RAFT also provides on-site program components to include support groups, budgeting classes, and a mentoring program along with community service projects. All service plans build on the family's strengths and use these to overcome their barriers. An integral part of the RAFT program includes collaboration with area agencies. These agencies provide specialized services to the families to help them accomplish the goals developed in their family service plans.
