Community Outreach

Because City Mission strives to bring hope to anyone experiencing hardship in our region, we extend our reach beyond our doors. Through our Samaritan Care Center, the WeCare Street Outreach Program, and the Shelter+Care Supportive Housing Program we extend our hands to those in need in our community.

Shelter+Care Supportive Housing Program

 

A federally HUD-funded Supportive Housing Program (SHP). Provides scattered-site housing in private market rental units in the community to individuals who have histories of chronic homelessness and disabilities. The program’s aim is to support tenants in maintaining their housing stability with the support of a City Mission case manager and Samaritan Care services, and by coordinating external supportive services as needed.
