HOS is able to assist families who have employment but have experienced a life-event that has put them into financial jeopardy. These families are ready to bypass the transitional shelter services and, with assistance, enter directly into housing. Rental assistance provides the client with financial resources to enter new housing, such as first and last month’s rent, and/or security deposits. Home of the Sparrow’s supportive case management services is provided for 6 to 9 months after the client enters housing to help with maintaining stability. Aftercare services are also provided as needed. The goal of this program is to rehouse families and individuals into permanent housing within 30 days of program entry and to maintain the permanent housing at both a six month and twelve-month check-in.
