Supportive Housing for Long-Term Homeless Families
What is the Supportive Housing Program?
Set-aside units are available for families with children experiencing long-term homelessness or for families considered higih-priority homeless. Families who reside in these units have access to support services to help them be successful and maintain their housing.
How do I access services for long-term homeless families?
You must complete an assessment that will evaluate your current situation and homelessness history. From this assessment, your household will be placed on a priority list for the area where you choose to reside. When units become available, households are contacted in order of priority. To schedule an assessment, you will need to contact your local community action council.
What support services are provided? New Pathways has a full-time case manager on site who will work with tenants to develop the skills necessary to maintain housing, such as understanding the requirements of their lease. The case manager will assist in developing the skills necessary to achieve housing stability and will connect the household members to resources that will allow them to become healthy, productive members of our community.
