The Permanent Supportive Housing group promotes and improves mental, emotional, physical and financial stability for our residents. It links residents to internal programs and external community resources that assist them in achieving their highest level of self-sufficiency.
Our "Housing First" approach works by providing safe, affordable housing coupled with supportive services tailored to meet each individual's needs. We use an assertive engagement approach to encourage residents to participate.
Social and recreational activities engage and appeal to residents, who also can participate in workforce development programs that help them to finish their education, develop work skills and find a job or volunteer service.
Under our blended management model, property management and supportive services work together to ensure the best possible outcomes for all residents. Activities include:
- Collaborative team meetings
- Assessment and referral
- Case management
- Life skills training
- Education enrichment
- Health care education
- Crisis intervention
- Employment services
- Recovery support
- Financial management assistance
- Work readiness training
- Joint property management and services apartment inspections
- Housing retention/eviction prevention planning
Permanent supportive housing communities are made possible through extensive collaborative partnerships with local and city government, area housing authorities, county commissioners, private foundations and corporate sponsors. We also partner with a variety of community organizations to ensure robust services, including computer and financial literacy programs.
The Permanent Supportive Housing buildings are designed with the special needs of our residents in mind. They include:
- A 24-hour staffed front entrance
- Interior and exterior security cameras
- Extensive outdoor lighting
- On-site computer resource center
- Handicapped accessible units
- On-site laundry facilities
Each apartment includes a bed, dresser, full-sized refrigerator, chairs and table, kitchen with oven and stove, bathroom, closet and built-in bookshelves.
