Enriching the lives of young adults on the verge of homelessness

In Central Florida, there are many young adults who have the ability and a desire to succeed but are being held back by negative influences in their life. They may be aging out of foster care or experiencing uncontrollable circumstances in their community or at home.

For over a decade, The Faine House has operated from a 7,000-square-foot facility in the Pine Hills community of Orlando, Florida. We host 10 private bedroom suites for 18 to 23-year-olds who are in desperate need of access to safety, stability, opportunity & mentorship. Each young adult sets their own financial, occupational, and educational goals and participates in a curriculum designed to heal and empower them to independence.

Without the support, modeling and mentorship provided by a program such as The Faine House, these individuals face a lifetime of dependency – welfare, jail, addiction, homelessness, abuse.

Comparing youth supported by these programs until the age of 21 vs. youth with no support after 18:

  • 68% continued their education in traditional or vocational schools (vs. 31%)
  • 37% were college students (vs. 12%)
  • Data shows a decline in substance abuse, violent and destructive behaviors and pregnancies
  • Data reflects an increase in financial stability

Our Mission:

Growing up through the foster care system, or living through a dangerous childhood, can make the pathway to becoming a successful adult almost seem impossible.  We assist these young adults of our community to overcome the threat of homelessness and incarceration by providing stability, guidance, and life skills to prepare them to thrive in adulthood.

Our Vision:

To build a thriving community of mentors leading the nation in young adult transformation services.

Our Core Values:

  • Compassion
  • Empowerment
  • Respect
  • Service
  • Community
  • Humility
  • Integrity
  • Inclusive

How We Came To Be:

Being adopted, Jeff Faine, a veteran NFL player from Central Florida, along with his wife Brittnie envisioned a program offering young adults mentorship, educational and occupational opportunities, safe housing, food, transportation, and financial literacy.

In 2011, the doors of The Faine House opened to offer critical, life-changing services for 18 to 23-year-olds needing someone who believes in them to reach their goals.

Faine Family

Dozens of Central Florida young adults have lived at The Faine House, opened their first bank account, found employment, attended technical school, or earned a college degree. Through The Faine House, young adults have the chance to discover themselves and what a future outside of the system might hold.

In 2022, the organization reorganized as The Faine House, Inc., an independent 501c3 organization, extending its impact to a larger community.
