Emergency Shelter Program
This temporary six month program moves a family from homelessness into safe, basic and decent housing. A fully furnished one or two bedroom apartment greets the family as they begin their journey towards self-sufficiency. Once stabilized, the family can begin to work on their individual goals which may include: identify and apply for housing; credit repair; increasing marketable job skills; finishing a GED program; finding employment; and addressing medical and mental health needs, positioning the family for independence and self-sufficiency.
Permanent Supportive Housing
Families who have one family member with a diagnosed disability are eligible to receive permanent supportive housing. The goal is the same: to transition these families to permanent stable housing and a better life. This may take longer than a year and look differently because of the increased barriers families with disabilities face. Families in this program work on individual goals which may include: obtaining disability benefits; applying for subsidized housing programs; participating in supported work programs; and stabilizing their medical and/or mental health needs.
