Once we’re successful in helping people get off the streets, the real test begins. If it takes nine months to get someone into housing, it may take twice that long working with them in an apartment environment before they feel fully capable and comfortable with taking care of themselves. Poverty diversion teams will monitor their situations, and help young renters build a life centered around their community. If they need help with furniture, clothes, rental assistance, we provide that.
