Abode’s social services department coordinates health and supportive services for participants in shelter and supportive housing programs, offering comprehensive on-site assistance. Abode has also cultivated strong relationships with more than 40 local service providers to connect participants to additional services. The on-site services that we provide at housing sites include job training, parenting classes, financial literacy, computer training, case management, health education and activities, and many others.
UMS Affordable Housing Services with affiliated partners operates nearly 60 primary programs across five counties and has experienced dramatic growth in response to the increasing need for affordable housing and services for homeless people. As a Housing First agency, our programs — from street-level outreach to permanent supportive housing — are designed to connect participants to housing as quickly as possible.
Here are just a few of the programs we administer in pursuit of our mission to end homelessness:
PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING
UMS affordable housing Services currently provides a full array of wrap-around resident services to 16 permanent supportive housing communities in the Bay Area.
The supportive services provided by our affiliate partners for permanent supportive households enable the residents to achieve their goals and support them to remain stably housed.
In the fiscal year 2018, 95 percent of participants in our partner’s permanent supportive housing programs remained stably housed during the year.
Rapid re-housing provides short-term rental assistance and services with the goal of helping people obtain housing quickly, increase self-sufficiency, and stay housed. Resources and services provided are typically tailored to the needs of the person. Rapid re-housing has proven to be effective in keeping formerly homeless people in newfound permanent housing. Once in a home, they are in a better position to address the issues that may have led to their homelessness, such as gaining employment or facing substance abuse challenges. In the fiscal year 2018, 97 percent of households housed through rapid rehousing programs exited to permanent housing.
This homelessness-prevention program is for young adults exiting the foster care system.
