Our Goals

The overall goal of our projects is to increase and expand housing options in order to prevent and reduce homelessness. A related goal is to stem the cycling and recycling of homeless and disabled individuals among jails, hospitals, substandard housing units and the streets. We intend to serve as a national role model for the successful housing and retention of homeless, disabled and disadvantaged individuals.


Our Environments
Each unique development will be a rehabilitation-centered environment. Housing units will incorporate design elements to facilitate the housing stability of individuals with those disorders most associated with chronic homelessness, that is, psychiatric disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. Residents will be encouraged to focus on recovering their health, resolving legal issues and achieving financial stability. They will receive individualized recommendations to ongoing social supports and health related services. Housing will be offered pursuant to the Housing First philosophy.

Our Mission: Innovations toward housing stability.

Management
Management practices will be based on those compassionate strategies developed by Rehabilitation Psychologist Mary McLaughlin, PhD, Executive Director. Regulations will follow the rehabilitation principle of normalization wherein tenants are expected to meet normal housing requirements, not exceptional housing requirements.

Affiliations
We have developed partnerships with area health care, rehabilitation services, legal services and social services organizations.
We train advocates in strategies helpful to disadvantaged and disabled people.
We conduct research and maintain internship affiliations with students at a number of leading colleges and universities.
