Residential services include emergency shelter and transitional housing facilities. Residential clients have access to a wide array of supportive and follow-up services designed to address immediate concerns for safety and security and long term needs necessary to empower victims to achieve self-sufficiency and establish violence-free homes. All residential services are designed to help clients secure permanent housing upon exit from the program.
- Emergency Shelter is a safe space for adults and children who are fleeing from violence related to domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or human trafficking.
- Transitional Housing is temporary, secure housing that supports victims as they recover from trauma and prepare to transition back into the community. During their stay, clients receive case management, advocacy, life skills training, and education to empower them towards self-sufficiency in their community of choice upon exit from FSC’s residential program.
- Rapid Rehousing is a housing intervention program that includes immediate placement in permanent housing for those without ongoing safety concerns. Clients remain eligible for intensive case management and community resource assistance for continued support while residing within the community. This service is for clients who can maintain permanent housing with continued support.
- Case Management includes joint efforts in establishing goals and facilitating advocacy needs through communication and resource assistance to promote safety and positive outcomes. These services empower the client to increase their knowledge, skill level, and move towards self-sufficiency.
- Supportive Services include childcare, life skills classes, budgeting, financial literacy, and counseling. These services increase the probability that clients will regain independence while in the residential program.
- Follow Up Services are offered to all clients upon exit from FSC’s residential program. These services continue housing advocacy, employment counseling, and help to connect clients with community resources to increase their likelihood of a successful transition to independent living.
- Children’s Services provide therapeutic assistance with children while families are in shelter. Children’s staff coordinate and supervise structured on and off campus activities to help the victims juggling family displacement.
