Supporting Programs with your Contribution
Downtown Homeless Outreach Coordinator
With a consistent presence downtown and access to an outreach vehicle, this full-time staff person works on the front lines helping individuals get off the streets, and is a point person for other homeless-related issues.
Housing First Endowment Fund
Assist chronically homeless individuals in obtaining permanent supportive housing. Housing First vouchers are used as a first step toward stabilization and are complemented by wraparound services, such as counseling and job training.
Household essentials are needed for participants in the Housing First program. Items such as linens, furniture and cookware are supplied to help participants lead independent lifestyles.
Rental Application Fees/Security Deposits
The first step toward permanent housing is the completion of a rental application and the submission of a security deposit. Be the hero who helps individuals begin the journey toward stabilization.
