Friendship Place is dedicated to supporting women at risk or experiencing homelessness in rebuilding their lives and achieving a life of stability for their self and their family. About 90% of the participants we serve in our permanent supportive housing (PSH) and rapid-rehousing programs are single mothers. Here are a few of the many ways we help women in our community:
Neighbors First – Families
Neighbors First Families provides PSH for highly-vulnerable, chronically homeless families. All families in the program are provided with permanent housing, along with comprehensive long-term case management support that ensures their stability. Neighbors First Families gives families who have faced extreme hardship a better quality of life, in both the short and long term. Click here to learn more.
Home Now is a rapid rehousing assistance program that helps single adults quickly exit homelessness and return to permanent housing. Friendship Place case-management provides program participants in the program with intensive care and guide them through every step of the process of obtaining secured housing. Resources and services offered by Home now are tailored to the unique needs of the individual. Click here to learn more.
Veronica House is a group home that serves five formerly homeless women. The PSH program has been a partnership between Community Housing Trust and Friendship Place since 1994. Friendship Place staff provides intensive case management to participants at the residence.
