Class of Housing/Services: Housing Programs: Interim Housing, Immediate Housing
Families live on-site for four months in a fully furnished apartment. Upon entry into the program, adults take a self-sufficiency assessment. Each family is assigned a Family Coach who partners to help them achieve their short- and long-term goals. A Housing Specialist works with families to transition them to permanent housing. While living on-site, adults and children participate in supportive services aimed at building self-sufficiency.
Each family lives in an apartment at no cost and with utilities paid. Families are required to save 50 percent of their income to reduce the debt that prevents them from obtaining permanent housing and to save for rent and utility deposits for permanent housing.
In the 9-month Immediate Housing Program, families with fewer barriers to housing meet with our Intake Specialist upon their entrance to Community LINC. These families meet with the Housing Specialist to identify housing priorities, preferences and action steps to be self-sufficient. Families are then moved directly into permanent housing and provided nine months of Aftercare Services that deliver the same core competencies as our Interim Housing program.
