Our process allows a person to determine the physical resources necessary to rebuild their life, make a plan and set that plan into motion. The goal is to help the individual or family to stabilize the crisis that contributed to becoming homeless.
A crisis, as defined by Webster's Dictionary, is "the turning point, for better or worse, in an acute disease or situation". At this critical time, support and help can give people a window of opportunity to facilitate a life change.
Once the basic needs have been met and the trauma that clouded decision-making is healing. There is time to reflect, plan, and move on. Standing in this median spot, it is possible to see in all directions; the past, the present, and options for the future.
With a foundation of trust, support, and collective problem solving; all the elements necessary for tackling the daunting task of rebuilding a life.
This is preparation for a transition. If a person has been living in transitional housing and wishes to move to permanent housing (either affordable or market rate), we will provide support. Transitions always involve change and can be somewhat destabilizing.
