The Journey to End Homelessness
We begin the housing journey by evaluating and mapping out your needs.
We match your assessment to programs and services with resources to meet your needs.
We provide ongoing support to ensure you are set up for success in your new housing.
Family Life Center offers a variety of Housing programs each uniquely designed to meet the variety of needs presented in our community.
Rapid re-housing provides short-term rental assistance and services. The goal is to help people obtain housing quickly, increase self- sufficiency, and stay housed. It has been demonstrated to be effective in getting people experiencing homelessness into permanent housing and keeping them there. By connecting people with a home, they are in a better position to address other challenges that may have led to their homelessness, such as obtaining employment or addressing substance abuse issues. The intervention has also been effective for even challenging circumstances such as limited or no income and survivors of domestic violence.
Part of ending homelessness means preventing homelessness. Our homeless prevention program includes multiple strategies such as diversion, rental assistance, and/or deposits. We try to address the resource needs of our participants at risk of facing homelessness and prevent them from sleeping in environments not designed for human habitation.
Permanent Supportive Housing offers long-term affordable housing assistance and case management for families and individuals with the greatest needs. Participants must meet the criteria for Chronic Homelessness–meaning theyʻbe been homeless for more than a year, and have a documented disability. The people we serve in this program often struggle with mental illness, addiction, severe health conditions, and trauma or domestic violence. We use the Housing First approach, which allows us to eliminate strict eligibility requirements, so we can help people meet their basic needs first, and then focus on overcoming challenges.
