Supportive Housing Services
Working to end homelessness — that is the mission of the Project Home and Youngdahl supportive housing programs. Through these programs, South Central Human Relations Center provides a variety of services across a five-county area for people currently experiencing homelessness.
Once Project Home engages homeless individuals, youth and families, our staff works with them for as long as it takes to return them to self-sufficiency. This includes providing assistance that ranges from outreach to offering permanent supportive housing so that people with a mental illness can become stable and productive members of their communities.
- Outreach and engagement
- Location of stable housing
