Supportive Housing - Home for Good and SHIFT (Supportive Housing for Individuals & Families in Transition)

CAC’s first permanent supportive housing program started in 2008. This is long-term, community-based housing for homeless persons with disabilities. These programs provide intensive case management with access to supportive services including alcohol and drug abuse services, mental health and counseling, health related services, education assistance, child care, transportation, household goods/cleaning supplies and furniture. Participants are assisted in obtaining and remaining in permanent housing, and are helped to increase self-sufficiency by increasing employment and/or income to maximize their ability to live independently.
