Programs

Support Services  - Clients receive individualized case management through our Support Services program. Each client is assigned a social worker, who offers the support and resources needed to obtain health services, financial stability, and permanent housing.

Housing Navigation - Clients receive field-based case management and housing preparation to help them secure and maintain wraparound services after housing placement to help stabilize well-being.

Integrative Wellness - Our multidisciplinary team of health care professionals and students provides clients with coordinated delivery of services that puts the person at the center of the care and addresses the full range of physical, mental, social, and environmental influences that affect a person’s health and well-being. This includes the coordination of conventional medicine, complementary/alternative medicine, and lifestyle/self-care.

 

Homeless Engagement and Response Team (HEART) - A three-person team outreach to homeless individuals in Chinatown. The three-person team utilizes a combination of culturally and linguistically appropriate research-based outreach strategies, best practices, and community-informed knowledge to deliver a variety of activities and resources to help people experiencing homelessness to obtain and maintain housing.

 

Approach

We provide services to those who have multiple and interrelating social, behavioral, and mental problems negatively impacting their health. Each client is unique, and therefore, has his or her own worldview and life choice history. We work collaboratively with the client to set attainable goals that are based on the client’s own perspective of his, her, or their needs. We utilize a client-centric approach to create an atmosphere promoting a sense of personal empowerment for clients to discover their own answers and solutions as they traverse a courageous path towards a better life.

We also utilize a harm reduction model in which we make every effort to meet the client where they are and collaboratively address their problems. We work toward a broader overall condition of wellbeing and improvement-oriented toward achieving a life off the streets. In addition to “Motivational Participation” which is a process of incorporating clients into various levels of our duties, working alongside us. This helps clients see the value we see in them, thereby motivating them to take an active role in their lives while building the confidence and capacity to engage in treatment to manage their challenges and problems.
