Housing First at Crawford Homes
Crawford Homes provides housing and supportive services for individuals, couples, and families experiencing long-term homelessness due to a disability. The program provides 40 permanent homes to over 60 adults and children. The Crawford Homes program is part of a national campaign to eliminate homelessness for those who suffer with the greatest needs and struggles. In Crawford’s first year, the program ended 300 years of collective homelessness and individuals in the program saw a 65% drop in emergency room use and an 88% drop in incarceration rates.
Crawford 2, a 2nd project providing 43 homes, is expected to open in the fall of 2017.
To determine your eligibility, please see a caseworker at Shalom between 9am and 3pm, Monday through Friday.
