Loisann’s Hope House program and model combines effective practices that incorporate safe, affordable housing, employment, transportation and childcare. These are all necessary components for a family to sustain financial self-reliance in their own homes. Families enter into the program and a comprehensive assessment is conducted immediately to understand what is needed in addition to shelter. At this time a person may require education, job training, transportation, mental health services, parenting support and childcare.
Loisann's Hope House's 95% percent success rate is attributed to the strong foundation clients receive, as well as to the organization's well-respected intensive case management program. From the onset, we encourage them to make positive life changes that will support a higher quality of life. The program is designed to help clients set and meet attainable goals. We focus on life-skills and opportunities that will assist them in gaining financial stability, employment, job readiness, vocational, educational, independent living or social - that will assist them in gaining permanent housing and breaking the cycle of homelessness for their family.
The need for family emergency shelter within our community remains high.
