Hopeless. Frustrated. Scared.
That’s how it feels to be homeless or on the brink of losing your apartment. It’s an all-consuming situation: everything takes a back seat when you are faced with homelessness. Productive lives deteriorate: jobs are lost, education sacrificed, children’s needs overlooked and relationships suffer.
Safe, secure, shelter lets households focus on jobs, school and relationships without the stress of where they will sleep or how they will eat.
Our case managers stabilize the household’s housing first and then work to improve the longer term chances for success. Without stable housing there is no way a household can be successful.
