Program Description

  Homeless Services for Single Adults

Homeless Single Adult Services provides emergency shelter, street outreach, safe haven, and transitional housing to adults experiencing homelessness. Services include street outreach and engagement, comprehensive needs assessments, and case management to link persons experiencing homelessness to housing, behavioral health, financial, and legal programs. All services are housing-focused with a goal of connecting adults with permanent housing as quickly as possible and removing systemic barriers to accessing housing and services. All homeless service providers participate in the Coordinated Entry System which uses a coordinated assessment to prioritize individuals for housing.
