Operation: Housing is a Conditional Cash Transfer Program with the goal of providing the resources, support, and education to achieve permanent housing and financial goals. Through motel outreach, Frontline Housing enrolls families that are on their way to permanent housing and assists them with addressing their barriers each month. Families are required to save each month, attend a monthly workshop, and spend a portion of their funds towards application fees, paying down debt to increase credit and paying down off any recent evictions.
