At The Salvation Army Center of Hope, we offer long-term supportive housing programs and life skills to help people move from a state of crisis, to independence and happier lives. Our multi-faceted programs serve families, single women and single men.
Supportive Housing for Families & Single Women provides safe housing and intensive case management for families and single women who are experiencing homelessness or who are victims of abuse and neglect. This program also offers training programs and referrals to treatment and recovery, if needed. Our programs attempt to keep families connected, housing entire families with single moms, single dads, husbands and wives, and we are one of the few programs pleased to house teenage boys.
The goal of the program is to assist families and single women experiencing homelessness in gaining the employment and personal skills necessary to achieve financial and personal stability and move to permanent housing.
Based on our track record, approximately 86% of families enrolled in the program will maintain a permanent source of income and move into permanent housing. On the average, 80% of single women enrolled in the program maintain a permanent source of income and move to permanent housing.
Supportive Housing for Single Men:
On June 18th, 2012, we revived a new long-term supportive housing program specifically for men. Participants are highly motivated individuals who are experiencing homelessness. All residents are assigned to a case manager to assist them with job readiness, money management, and other classes (such as GED completion) through our Quality of Life Learning Center.
Program services offered include:
- Individualized, plan-based, intensive case management to assess the personal needs of each individual and family.
- Life skills learning classes, including GED tutored training, job readiness and search assistance, and financial literacy, through collaboration with the Financial Empowerment Center.
- On site counseling in collaboration with CODA, AA, NA and more.
- Living quarters for each family and single woman and access to our shared family and women’s lounges.
- Communal living that includes a bed with privacy divider and storage space, and access to the shared community lounge.
- Assistance in search for safe and affordable housing.
