Once placed into housing, participants work closely with Case Managers to develop and maintain a “housing sustainability plan.” This plan is individualized to your needs/challenges. Our Case Managers will perform home visits and supportive services to ensure you are connected with all the eligible resources necessary to keep you in housing. Our Case Managers will work with you for at least 12 months after being housed.
Our Triage Shelter is designed to provide temporary shelter for homeless individuals and families until appropriate and affordable permanent housing can be found. The Triage Shelter also includes safety and protection from exposure to the weather for individuals experiencing homelessness. For more than 30 years, research has demonstrated that stabilizing people through shelter, moving them into permanent housing, and implementing assistance programs to keep them in their housing, can not only reduce but eliminate, homelessness. Shelters are a stepping stone on the way to housing, not a destination.
We have parking available to program participants at both our West Run and Scott Avenue locations. However, we do not have parking available at our downtown Emergency Triage Shelter.
At Bartlett Housing Solutions, the goal for ALL of our programs is HOUSING. Participants in all of our programs will be assigned a case manager. Together, you will work on a housing plan aimed at returning you to permanent sustainable housing.
