Emergency Shelter

Our shelter helps individual adults become stable by meeting their basic needs with shelter and food. Those in the emergency shelter also receive assistance obtaining benefits, accessing health care, and locating permanent housing. Once a person achieves stability in the shelter program, Case Management and the Education Employment team will work with them to build on their strengths, and develop a pathway to higher levels of self-sufficiency and self-fulfillment.

Recovery House

Recovery House is a licensed 90-day program designed for adult men and women in active recovery and who are referred from a treatment facility, probation, or justice-related services.

Case Management

EECM case management is integral to all of our programs. Case management services help individuals and families meet their basic needs by focusing on permanent housing resources, obtaining income, receiving benefits, accessing resources such as insurance and health care, and connecting to other community-based resources. Case Managers also work to connect people, who call in or come to the facility, with the necessary community resources for assistance with things such as, obtaining IDs, birth certificates and Social Security Cards, finding new affordable housing, locating rental/utility assistance, and many other needs.

Education & Employment (E&E)

The Education & Employment program provides case management, education, housing & employment services for individuals facing the impacts of poverty.

 

Each participant works one-on-one with the coordinator to develop an individualized employment plan focused on both obtaining and maintaining employment.

Participant Time Commitment:

We understand that everyone’s employment and recovery needs are different. Therefore, the time commitment for the Education & Employment program can vary for each individual. Program participation will occur on weekdays during regular business hours, and participants should expect to commit 1-2 hours per day, 1-2 days per week, for up to 10 weeks. East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM) is not a treatment provider but will work with your treatment provider to help you continue in your recovery and become employed.
