Intensive Housing Based Case Management

Intensive Housing Based Case Management : 

This program provides intensive case management services to residents housed under the Urgent Homelessness Program with the city of Sault Ste. Marie. This includes working with chronically homeless individuals/families referred from local shelters, jails, and hospitals and with individuals who are at high risk of homelessness. We have been effective at reaching individuals in their own environment to foster and develop skills necessary for long-term self-efficacy and housing stability success. The program focuses on housing maintenance for those with significant barriers to housing stability, as well as social and community integration including connections to employment and education. This program is funded by the District of Sault Ste. Marie Social Services Administration Board.
