ONE BY ONE, LET'S GET THEM HOME.
When basic needs are uncertain – if we are hungry, if we don’t have a place to sleep, if we are in fear of our safety – the other challenges we encounter in life become even more difficult to overcome.
There are over 2,500 members of our community who are out on the streets, living in their cars or even in tents and self-made shelters. We know that the barriers preventing people from leaving the streets are as varied as the people themselves. Whether a result of drug addiction, health challenges, job loss or something else, when someone becomes homeless, it’s a true personal crisis. To survive, those experiencing homelessness need access to basic services and safe spaces to be – both during the day and at night.
THE KEY IS COMMUNITY PARTNERS
It's a problem that's long past needing attention. To have lasting and far-reaching results, we need to work together with our community providers and partners with a variety of wraparound services. The three pillars to success are; access to healthcare, access to employment and, of course, housing.
Our goal is to support and coordinate providers whose programs provide a safe, temporary home and support services for participants during their transition out of homelessness. Our intent is to help the families and individuals who are homeless make this journey in the best, fastest way possible.
