While food, clothing and shelter will always constitute the immediate needs of the homeless population, over the past two decades the barriers and obstacles preventing homeless families and individuals from moving into housing have become more daunting.
Nevertheless, SHC has evolved by successfully cultivating and implementing a variety of innovative programs designed to respond to the complex circumstances affecting our clientele—in particular, developing affordable supportive housing programs. SHC’s supportive services staff, through a very personalized approach, strives to nurture our homeless clients transitioning off the streets and out of emergency shelters by providing them with housing opportunities crucial for their safety and stabilization. Over the past several years, we have been successful in providing permanent supportive housing for over 90 formerly homeless people—including both families and individuals.
