Housing

A home, a fresh start

PorchImagine formerly homeless mothers, together in a community where they can reunify with their children and create a safe and stable home. Picture an environment where there is specialized attention, where parenting skills are taught by licensed clinicians, a place where families learn independent living skills together. The Mother Child Reunification House is such a place—where the focus is on today, so families can build strong ties and see a bright future.

Our 90-Day Programs for individual men and women serve over 200 people a year. 85% successfully complete, gain sustainable income and move out of homelessness into housing with Amos House in one of our 12 residential buildings. Our recidivism rate of only 10% is dramatically lower than the state or national average because of our strong community. Individuals come to Amos House broken. While here, they regain their dignity and integrity.

Our housing programs provide a continuum of care and services—and what we know is that ongoing support builds success. Following successful completion of our 90-Day programs, our guests can choose to move into our Phase Two housing—a more independent set of housing options that still provide intensive case management, groups, and our clean and sober community. Amos House’s community embraces each and every guest and offers unconditional support and guidance. John, a guest enrolled in our program told his case manager, “I am successful today because you believed in me when I couldn’t believe in myself.”

“I have never had my own keys before today. I don’t know where to hold them.”

– Paula, upon moving into her first apartment in her life, at age 40

It's a Start

We are not satisfied with the status quo. Sheltering individuals and families is not the end of our work, it is the start. The solution is permanent supportive housing. This year, Amos House moved 206 adults and families out of homelessness and into our permanent and transitional supportive housing.
