The HOPE program provides three different types of housing programming to individuals and families experiencing homelessness with the goal of helping them obtain and maintain housing stability. Each type of housing provides a different level of assistance for a different time period to meet the unique needs of each household. Every year, we serve 60 to 80 households through our HOPE program.
The first type of housing is rapid re-housing, a short-term, community-based housing intervention that combines rent and utilities assistance with Case Management to assist participants in exiting homelessness quickly. The second type of housing is transitional housing, provided at our Walker Family Residential Community. Transitional housing is offered to individuals and families for up to two years, combining affordable rent with Case Management to set participants up for success post-program. Finally, we offer permanent supportive housing at our Walker Community. This intervention allows individuals with a fixed income who have a disabling condition to have a safe, affordable place to live for as long as they need.
Regardless of the type of housing, our HOPE program participants engage in regular sessions with a Case Manager. Sessions include working toward employment, improving physical and mental health, obtaining benefits, creating and maintaining budgets, and setting individualized goals.
of households maintain their housing 6+ months post-program.
