This program targets individuals and families who are homeless for the first time and helps them secure housing quickly and solve the problems that caused their homelessness through supportive case management. Eligible clients are provided with financial assistance, housing placement and more.
Clients with a history of chronic homelessness and disability are offered agency-managed apartments. BEDS has a rolling stock of 50 supportive housing units, including 30 scattered site units and 20 in the purpose-built Ogden Avenue Supportive Housing facility. This program serves highly vulnerable people with a history of chronic homelessness, physical and mental disabilities, and serious health conditions.
Our Transitional Housing program provides temporary housing for specialized populations with intensive supports and focus on assessment of future independence. Clients are either literally homeless or at risk of homelessness. The program does not require tenants to pay any rental portion and instead recognizes the need for intensive, specialized case management.
