Earl’s Place is a transitional housing program providing long-term (up to two years) housing and supportive services for seventeen homeless men. The men are provided with a permanent address, a place to receive mail and phone calls and perhaps most importantly a place to call home, where concerns such as having a clean, safe place to sleep, shower and keep their belongings is alleviated.
The program promotes independence and acquisition of skills using a model that emphasizes individual responsibility and accountability. Once accepted into the program each man is provided with intensive case management to determine both short and long-term goals and access to community services including health care, education and job training.
Ultimately the residents are assisted in obtaining affordable permanent housing and one year of formal aftercare is provided to help ensure success.
