The Foyer – $35,000
The Foyer is a low-barrier emergency overnight shelter for vulnerable and hard-to-reach individuals experiencing homelessness which is paired with access to social services that promote the achievement of permanent housing and better health outcomes. The Foyer’s end goal is not shelter; it is permanent housing. Aligning a shelter environment with a Housing First approach provides access to shelter without prerequisites with an entrée to permanent housing options.
Minvilla Manor – $20,000
Minvilla Manor provides permanent supportive housing to low-income chronically homeless individuals. In order to qualify for Minvilla, individuals must have a disability and be literally homeless for at least one year (or have at least 4 episodes of homelessness in the past year that total 12 months). Residents are provided not only with affordable permanent housing, but also with case management support services that will allow them to maintain housing and become stable members of our community.
Resource Center – $95,000
The Resource Center is an evidenced based transitional day program providing case management to assist individuals experiencing homelessness to attain affordable, permanent housing. It provides the additional skills and supportive services required to maintain housing with a focus on accountability. The Resource Center provides a safe and supportive daytime environment in which clients can access meals, showers, laundry, telephone and mail, computers, and classes on a variety of topics.
“Homeslessness CAN be ended, and we are demonstrating that day in and day out”
