HCS offers emergency overnight shelter for men, women, and families experiencing homelessness. Participants receive a bed assignment in the program and receive personalized case management from our Housing Advocates. Families are currently housed temporarily in hotel rooms where they can remain housed together. The HCS Housing Advocate team supports all program participants to transition out of emergency shelter and into stable housing.
HCS operates a specialized unit for veterans experiencing homelessness. Veterans admitted to the program receive a room assignment and holistic case management and counseling services. Veterans Affairs (VA) and support services hold offices on-site to provide easily accessible care for veterans in the program.
