Self-sufficiency is an important component of the long-term transitional, rapid rehousing and permanent housing programs. Participants are individually assessed. Residents are required to have an income and they are responsible for paying their affordable rent and child care once stable.
Through the case management program residents will establish short-term and long-term goals. In addition, self-sufficiency will be nurtured by creating a Resident Management Organization that will be developed to allow resident involvement in the decision making of the program.
One of our main objectives is to assist residents in identifying barriers to acquiring higher wage paying jobs and improve participation in educational and job skills enhancement programs.
The overall program goals consist of residential stability, increased skills or income and greater self-determination.
