Non-Congregate Housing Program
This program will utilize former motel and other lodging buildings for use as shelter for people experiencing homelessness.
The Non-Congregate Shelter program will utilize repurposed motels, apartment buildings, single room occupancy buildings and/or other properties to provide safe emergency shelter and transitional housing. The goal of the program is to provide non-congregate shelter space to improve outcomes, keep families together, increase security and dignity and expedite transition into more stable housing for residents using shelter services. While providing services in a congregate setting is often the norm in the shelter system, providing individual, self-contained living spaces for service users improves a wide range of outcomes for health and well-being. This CRP Project is intended to improve the quality of shelter services provided to residents and the long-term health and housing outcomes of those who use these services.
