Heading Home has been helping clients move out of shelter for 45 years and this fiscal year, ending on June 30th, is a hallmark year – with over 120 moves out of shelter, last year’s record will be doubled.
Supporting clients on their paths out of homelessness continues, despite COVID. Since March 13th, 30+ strong and resilient families have moved from Heading Home shelter into permanent supportive housing – almost 4 moves a week. These moves include many long stayers, including one client who had been with us over 1,400 days. Through relentless pursuit of answers amidst many systems, our case management teams advocate for our clients. Once moved, clients continue to draw on our stabilization services, 12 months of dedicated support aimed at independence.
