Housing first

We believe in the power of housing as the foundation for life.

That's why we're working to move every chronically-homeless person in Spokane into long-term housing.

For many  homeless adults, past experiences an d health conditions make qualifying for and staying in housing almost impossible. 

That is why we operate 240 apartments throughout Spokane to support these individuals into independent living. 

These “Housing First” apartments are unique in that they put homeless adults into safe, stable, permanent housing as fast as possible and then tackle their problems—a revolutionary approach to eradicating homelessness that has proven highly successful in cities across the country.

These are permanent homes, where residents can stay for as long as needed. Case managers provide one-on-one support and encouragement to residents as they learn to manage their medical and mental health care, finances, independent living, education, employment, and other important components of a stable and independent life.
