The Inter-Faith Council @ SECU Community House will offer a transitional housing program to help residents recover from homelessness, rebuild their lives and become active and productive members of the community. GGA Architects, P.A. has designed a 16,543 sq. ft. building on two levels. The first floor will house administrative offices and supportive living programs. Resident dormitories for 52 men and kitchen/dining facilities will be located on the second floor. This arrangement is ideal for a step-up program that will help homeless men move toward independence.
The mission of the Inter-Faith Council @ SECU Community House is to promote independence and self-reliance through a housing model that informs, connects and empowers residents in their efforts to renew their lives, develop new skills, access community resources and obtain employment and permanent housing.
Community House has evolved into a residential program that will offer a continuum of support services, restore lives and help homeless men become productive citizens. The new and improved program will provide:
- Safe and stable living accommodations
- High standards for resident participation
- Improved services, new skills and personal guides for independent living
- Substance abuse education and counseling
- On-site medical, dental and mental health treatment
- Job coaches, counselors and agency partners
- Partnerships with community agencies
Services will help homeless men transition back into the community--something we all will celebrate and be very proud of.
