While the only way to cure homelessness is through housing, providing a home is just the first step on the path toward stability and self-sufficiency. Even after receiving a roof over their heads, many of our clients need ongoing help in order to stabilize their lives and maintain their housing.
Once our clients have a safe place to call home and no longer have to worry about meeting their daily needs and surviving on the street, they are able to focus turning their lives around. Under the Housing First approach, we first place our clients in a stable home and then provide extensive case management and wrap-around support services to help them increase their income, improve their health, rebuild their lives, and maintain their stability over the long-term.
SEARCH’s skilled case managers are located at the various housing sites where our clients reside to work with the formerly homeless residents and support them as they work to regain their independence.
