Housing & Employment Services
Housing & Employment Services works alongside individuals and families to help them build strong foundations like meeting housing needs to become stable or moving to higher levels of self-fulfillment through case management and employment services.
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.
