The Journey to Housing Program

Posted By: Daniel Faoro (June 1, 2018)
St. Vincent de Paul's “Journey to Housing Program” was started in 2013, We are a transitional housing program for the homeless in western Wayne County and support those in need of shelter by providing them with move-in costs, furniture, household goods and monthly rent subsidies until the family becomes financially independent (with 12-24 months of weekly counseling). We help the family work towards self-sufficiency with counseling to assist with budgeting, household management, parenting skills and employment search. We provide face-to-face visits with those we serve and do a personal, comprehensive assessment, of not only financial needs, but personal needs as well. - "whole-person" centered approach. We are supported by SVdP though classes taken by our members
and a national network with other similar Housing Programs. We have helped over 46 persons and have a 90% success rate for those we have served
