The process of exiting homelessness, particularly long-term homelessness, is more than complex: for some, it can be impossible without experienced support and guidance. Internal struggles, like mental health issues, substance misuse disorder, or physical and emotional trauma, coupled with external barriers, such as application fees, complicated applications and forms, and stereotyping and biases, can all stall or even derail a person's journey out of homelessness.
Our case management team works hard every day to meet clients where they are, wherever they are, on their journey out of homelessness. Each client and case manager team works through the steps to permanent housing, which can take weeks, months, or even years, depending on the individual and their needs.
