Homelessness Is Not One Dimensional.
The Solution Isn't Either.
Income & Skill Development
All clients at Haven for Hope are assisted in developing a person-centered income plan that’s specific to their goals, abilities, and circumstances. The mission of Income & Skill Development is to present opportunities and remove barriers to income, education, and skill development, in order to help individuals implement a strategy for long-term financial stability and permanent housing.
Haven to Home Recovery Team
Transformational Case Management provides person-centered support to individuals and families by working with each client to understand their barriers and connect them to Haven programs and other partner agencies. The Case Management teams coordinate case management planning and care with Haven’s Income and Skills Development and Housing teams.
The Supportive Housing Team of Case Managers and Peer Support Coordinators help clients to transition into housing from the Haven campus. The Housing Team works to identify and procure safe, decent, and affordable housing while assisting clients in sustaining their long term recovery and housing.
The Transformational Campus provides residential housing while clients work to address the issues that have led to their homelessness. Approximately 180 partner organizations collaborate to provide wide-ranging comprehensive services, from obtaining identification to securing permanent housing.
