Permanent Housing

Permanent Housing reStart offers a full range of services for homeless men and women. From emergency shelter to transitional living, permanent housing for individuals with special needs to assistance and support, reStart provides the tools to help the homeless transition into permanent housing.

SCATTERED SITE PERMANENT HOUSING

The scattered site permanent housing program provides 5 housing units for families and 8 units for chronically homeless and disabled individuals. This program offers supportive health care, educational assistance, chemical dependency support groups, life skills classes, housing assistance, and other support programs through our partners and case management team.

In 2017, we provided permanent housing for 879 persons — more than two a day, every day of the year!

A NEW START provides 21 units of permanent housing in a three-building apartment complex for adults with persistent mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse disorders.
