The goal of the program is to quickly connect the most appropriate intervention to households that are the most vulnerable.   We offer a variety of supportive services on-site, including: phone/mail services, shower and laundry facilities, day sleep room, meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner),  gas vouchers and bus tokens, and other needed services.   The HSP is open Monday through Friday, 7:30am-6pm; Saturdays and Sundays, 10am-6pm.   Permanent Supportive Housing Permanent Supportive Housing is a combination of affordable housing and on-site Case Management to help individuals and families live more stable, productive lives.
