ShelterCare’s Programs & Services
Homeless Prevention & Rehousing
This is a Housing First program that helps households quickly move into permanent housing and stabilize within that housing. It focuses on helping households to exit homelessness as quickly as possible and establish the foundation for permanent housing.
The program includes housing stabilization services, case management, and financial assistance. Ongoing supportive services are tailored to the household, as each household’s needs differ. Get Help
Permanent Supported Housing
Low or no-barrier housing for individuals who have been chronically homeless and are medically fragile or are living with a mental illness. Clients are paired with a housing specialist who helps residents connect to resources and have access to peer support specialists who teach needed daily living skills. Get Help
