HEARTH also provides Facility-Based Affordable Housing!
As HEARTH continues to serve homeless women with children in our community, we also continue to learn and assess what needs they have while becoming economically self-sufficient. What we discovered was that there was a portion of our population, that became economically self-sufficient, but still needed the safety and security aspects of our facility.
What does this mean?
- Families that graduate our program that need our security features have access to them and continue to feel safe!
- Families still have access to our on-site supportive services, should there come a time that they need them (i.e. food pantry and clothing closet access).
- Families still live independently! Although they are on HEARTH’s site, their housing is no longer subsidized by our program.
