An exciting example of interim housing is Cathedral House, a shelter for homeless adults. The staff at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament refer most of the clients. Participants in this program can stay up to 90 days. Our staff develops individual case plans for each resident, focusing on housing, employment, and medical needs. We help them achieve their goals.
SSHH recognizes that housing instability can be a significant barrier to employment. Since 2014, SSHH has provided housing counseling to SETA clients while receiving employment and training services. This helps lower-income families become self-sufficient through training and employment. We enrolled 164 individuals or families in 2015, helping them achieve their long-term success.
Tenants in a housing crisis or dispute need a reliable resource for information about their rights and obligations as renters. SSHH provides a helpline for tenants that provides education and dispute resolution. This helps to keep families in their homes.
