Housing First doesn't mean housing only. Partners in Housing helps our residents obtain essential supplies like cleaning and personal hygiene products, household goods and emergency nonperishable food items. With over 600 residents, we go through these consumables quickly, and need your help to provide them.
The keys our residents get on move-in day may be the first set they've had in years. We provide every new resident with a move-in basket of essential items you may take for granted, like dish soap and toilet paper.
Emergency food pantries
Sometimes the unforeseen illness, family crisis or other emergency means that our residents can't make it to the grocery store or food pantry. We stock an onsite emergency food pantry with a variety of nonperishable items in every single one of our buildings.
Residents can do basic tasks around their community in exchange for "Commons Bucks". These tokens can be used in our onsite store for supplies like bleach, toilet paper, and trash bags. This program is furnished entirely by donations, as we don't charge residents any money for these items.
