Housing Up case managers take a holistic,
family-centered approach to providing
services that transform families’ lives.
Providing families with stable, safe housing is the first and most important step in accomplishing our mission of ending family homelessness. Housing Up follows the Housing First model, which focuses on quickly moving families experiencing homelessness into permanent housing with leases in their own names.
Once families are safely housed, Housing Up’s comprehensive support services help transition families from homelessness to housing and economic stability. Housing Up case managers takes a holistic, family-centered approach to provide services, working with the entire family (including children) to develop individual and family goals and measure progress. Our program staff provides resources and guidance on employment, education and physical/mental health.
Housing Up families experience a wide array of barriers that frequently impede job retention, which in turn disrupts family and housing stability. We know that providing job readiness training and education alone does not ensure a family’s success without other support. Our case management team helps to address these life issues, which can include transportation, finding reliable and affordable childcare and accessing resources for special needs children.
