Reaching Home aims to prevent and reduce chronic and episodic homelessness among individuals facing multiple barriers, such as those with mental health challenges, criminal justice experience, or problematic substance use by connecting them to safe and stable housing, as well as wraparound supports. Our Reaching Home team provides intensive case management to address the complex needs of the people they support, and works to connect individuals to community resources that will enable them to maintain long-term housing and end the cycle of homelessness. The program team works collaboratively with our Community Service Office to ensure that requests received from clients are addressed and responded to in a timely matter.
