HOUSING STABILIZATION

The greatest challenge individuals face after moving into a permanent home is maintaining it. We help each participant reintegrate into the community with services such as money management programs and life skills training. As of 2019, 98% of our stabilization clients were still in housing one year later.

HomeStart advocates support participants in understanding their lease, act as liaison with landlord, identify and apply for eligible resources, and help participants access needed medical, mental health, and substance abuse services. 

The Housing First team works with a significantly more disabled population providing stabilization services, as well as, basic daily living skill support.  These participants often need much more intensive hands-on support to succeed in housing. 

Representative Payees serve as money management specialists to provide financial acumen to clients, by assisting with paying bills and establishing budgets.
