We start by housing people directly from the streets, without precondition. Then we address their underlying issues around mental health, addiction, medical care, income, and education to help integrate and welcome them back into our community. We also provide furniture to folks moving out of homelessness from all over the city through our furniture bank.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that results from experiencing a major or sustained trauma. There is no clear indication of who will experience PTSD, or what event may be traumatic enough to cause it in one individual and not in another. Although we often associate PTSD with war veterans, there are many other events that can be sufficiently traumatic to cause long term harm. Physical or sexual assault, a traumatic accident, or near death experience are just a few.
