Read the real life stories of a few of our past supportive housing clients.
WE OPERATE OUR OWN HOUSING PROGRAMS. Supportive Housing: Long-term support is critical to housing retention for many people.
We provide long-term rent subsidies and day-to-day case management (help with managing finances, life skills, and health issues) for 30 homeless adults with physical, mental or emotional disabilities.
We provide long-term rent subsidies and day-to-day case management for 20 families with children, where one of the family members has a physical, mental, or emotional disability.
Rental Assistance: Some people just need a limited period of support in order to reach self-sufficiency.
In partnership with the City of Evanston, we provide temporary (up to two years) rent subsidies for approximately 20 working families with children in School Districts 65 and 202.
By coordinating childcare, training, educational, and career counseling services, we help each family to increase their household income so that they can be self-sufficient when their subsidy ends.
Residential Program for Youth: Homeless youth have unique needs.
Our House is an around-the-clock home operated by Connections for up to five young men between the ages of 18 and 24.
We prepare each resident to live up to their potential by helping them create a plan that includes goals related to social-emotional well-being, engagement in the community, education and employment, housing, life skills, and financial literacy.
