Update on the Housing Hub

Pacific Community Resource Society’s 'Housing Hub' program
houses those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in local market rental units and provides in home support at least once weekly to connect participants to community resources, and help them achieve their personal goals and become successful tenants. 
After operating for 9 months with two full time staff and a half time position contributed by Stó :   Service Agency, the program has housed 29 people, including 7 children, in 12 apartment units and an 8 bedroom duplex. 
Of the 22 adults housed, 15 had been homeless for over a year, and the remaining 7 adults were prevented from entering into homelessness as a result of the program. 
To date, no Housing Hub participants have entered back into homelessness. 
The Housing Hub will be wrapping up its pilot project phase March 31 st with the hopes of receiving enough funding to make the program sustainable. 
So far, the program has partially reached that goal and are awaiting responses from potential funders.
