Praise for safe house program:
Safe house programs have proven to be effective in supporting members of our communities with behavioral health issues.
One of these programs is housed at one of our local shelters. Our shelter for the homeless has always be바카라en a place where we would feel safe and feel loved. In 2016, we had 11 calls and calls to shelter workers, almost all of which were related to mental health issues. The she바카라사이트lter director said that the program is «the most successful» she has ever seen, but she has learned that she doesn’t always have the power to control the homeless. Many times there is a strong need for help; others do no바카라t need anything but hope. We can be proactive, but we cannot ignore what is truly needed in our community.
Safe house programs are so much more than shelters
Safe house programs are funded in part through fees, but also through donations. With these programs, people don’t just walk in and out of the shelter. When we work with them, we are making sure that they are comfortable, fed, clean and supervised as best we can. We are also providing support for people who are not housed in shelters at all – a person who feels neglected at work might become a safe house volunteer or a volunteer who helps others in need might become a new home-based individual.
It doesn’t matter if a shelter has housed a dozen people, our job is to be able to give them the love they deserve and then help them get to work again.
