Lives Touched:


Home LIFE helps people who are diagnosed with mental illness, have a history of addiction and substance use, low income families and other marginalized people who can be susceptible to homelessness. Home LIFE works with these persons to help them to live independently. Our supportive housing units are safe and affordable, and are coupled with counseling, job training, money management and activities that foster responsibility and independence. We offer supportive housing that works.

Home LIFE also includes temporary housing for families experiencing homelessness. Food services are provided, referrals to legal programs, assistance with school placement, social/recreational activities and more.  While we utilize individualized care and a client driven model to help our families meet their needs, the number one goal in our temporary housing programs is housing placement.

Our Non-Secure Detention is an alternative to incarceration in a home-like setting for male youth who are considered low-risk offenders.
