Emergency Housing Ascencia currently operates two emergency housing programs. Clients work with case managers in our Access Center in order to receive safe, supportive shelter for families and adults. Year-Round Forty emergency shelter beds are located onsite and are available to eligible families with children and adults for up to 60-90 days. To be considered eligible, clients must be actively working with a case manager from Ascencia’s Access Center, pass a drug test, commit to saving/working to increase income and commit to respecting other guests and staff.  There are no age limits or other restrictions. This program is not a drop-in shelter. There is usually a wait of at least a few days for a bed to become available. Priority is given to Glendale residents. Winter Shelter During the 2015-16 winter season, from November 16 to March 31, Ascencia will operate 2 winter shelter programs. One is located in Glendale and provides 100-beds for single adults at 1219 Los Angeles Street. The other is located in Highland Park and provides 30 beds for single adults in the Northeast Los Angeles area.  Homeless adults can walk in off the streets and receive a safe, clean bed, a hot shower and warm meals. Permanent Supportive Housing Housing linked with continued services helps formerly homeless people keep their housing. Ascencia both operates its own supportive housing programs and refers clients to other providers. There is no time limit for this program, but clients frequently move out as their financial position improves. All program participants are expected to be responsible tenants. Next Step Program This 8-unit program serves formerly chronically homeless adults who have completed an addiction recovery program. The program uses a 12-step approach to support recovery. Residents must commit to sobriety. Next Step clients have monthly meetings and regularly meet with their case manager to ensure they are doing well in the recovery. Most clients in this program have employment or are seeking employment. Scattered Sites Program Ascencia provides formerly chronically homeless families and individuals with subsidized housing as well as supportive services through case management.  Program participants and their case managers collaborate on developing a financial management plan, obtaining employment, and successfully maintaining their housing. Shelter Plus Care Program Ascencia provides case management support to formerly chronically homeless families and individuals.  For some clients in this program, Ascencia uses a harm reduction approach, not requiring clients to be sober when entering the program. U.S. Veterans Services Ascencia works with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, through the HUD-VASH program, to move U.S. Veterans and their families into permanent housing. Street Outreach We go directly to the homeless to provide help. Outreach operates 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you see someone who needs help in the greater Glendale area, please call Ascencia’s Access Center at (818) 246-7900 and we will send an outreach case manager to the location.
