The Faine House

How We Help

In Central Florida, many young adults who have a desire to succeed are being held back by negative influences in their lives, past or ongoing trauma, or other uncontrollable circumstances. Without individual help and guidance, most face a lifetime of dependency – unemployment, incarceration, homelessness, addiction.

The Faine House helps young adults, rise above systemic poverty, succeed in dismantling generational trauma and achieve success/stability/independence. Participants create their own life playbook that include strategies for education, employment and mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Program participants connect with mentors invested in their well-being and success and become proficient in life skills, including:

  • Proper hygiene, health and wellness
  • Budgeting, building credit, long-term planning
  • Healthy cooking & healing habits
  • Securing transportation
  • Job readiness
  • Personal responsibility
  • Safe/authentic/healthy relationships
