Supportive Housing Programs
Front Steps, through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), provides a total of 56 units of permanent supportive housing designated for chronically homeless individuals.  Front Steps’ housing programs are based on the Housing First and Harm Reduction models.
In 2008, Front Steps was awarded a HUD funding to provide 10 units of permanent supportive housing.  More than 80% of our residents have maintained housing in this program for at least 25 months. In January 2011, Front Steps implemented new HUD funding to add an additional 26 units of housing to our inventory.  These units are specifically designated to house the chronically homeless and frequent users of the ARCH, which are some of our community’s most vulnerable individuals.
Front Steps’ supportive housing programs provide subsidized, scattered-site housing with intensive case management and other support services to ensure the successful housing and community integration of each client.  Frequent in-home case management meetings focus on housing stability, increasing self-sufficiency and self-determination.  In addition, the programs help our clients develop skills in money management, housekeeping, and integrating into the community.
Case managers assist clients with obtaining and maintaining employment or other income and addressing mental health and physical health needs.  Clients with income pay 30% of their income towards rent each month.In the spring of 2011, Front Steps introduced its Circle of Care mentor program which pairs mentors with clients to provide extra support while in our housing programs.  Trained mentors work in conjunction with the case managers to provide on-going support while modeling healthy behaviors and social activities.
Front Steps’ supportive housing program partners include: Austin Travis County Integral Care (ATCIC),Foundation Communities, Central Texas Recuperative Care Program, Foundation for the Homeless, Green Doors, The Mulholland Group and Streets of Hope Recovery Support Group.

Transitional Housing
Front Steps has limited transitional housing for clients of the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless (ARCH) and the Central Texas Recuperative Care Project, primarily through a group home unit where individuals can address issues of sobriety and income stabilization while establishing a housing plan to locate permanent housing solutions.
Our ‘First Steps’ housing program, which is generously funded by the Religious Coalition to Assist the Homeless, assists Front Steps clients move from the overnight emergency shelter into permanent supportive housing. For some clients, this may mean rental assistance on a subsidized unit within public housing or single room occupancy (SRO) unit until the client establishes an income. For others, First Steps may pay the move-in costs (security deposit, first month’s rent, household furnishings, etc.).

Bonita Street House of Hope
2605 Parker Road
Houston, TX 77093
Transitional housing with support services for persons who are homeless, chemically dependent, and ex-felons.
Insurance accepted:
$80.00 fee to live in shelter, with all bills paid.

The Bonita Hope Transitional Housing complex consists of eight buildings with 60 apartment units and two 16-bed dormitories. The facility provides a safe haven for up to 199 transitionally homeless men, women and children on any given night.

HomeAid's mission is to build and renovate shelters for the temporarily homeless. On any given night more than one million men, women and children find themselves without a home. In fact, women and children represent the fastest growing segment of the homeless populations. Sadly, the average age of a homeless person is only 9 years old! The future is in our children - the sound of laughter, a safe and dignified place to live, a new vocation, skills that create new opportunities, family bonds renewed, counseling for parents, a sense of belonging, self-esteem and determination will all thrive under the roof of Bonita House of Hope, because you made a difference.

Several days after settling in at the shelter, a new resident is interviewed by the shelter team.
We assess each one's strengths, needs and insight into their particular situation.
NHC Case Management staff creates 'schedule' of activities that provides meaningful input into return to successful, independent living.

We also assist with Social Security, food stamp and Medicaid referrals and getting medications and birth certificates.  Our case manager coordinates with all service agencies like MHMR, STAR, Paris Counseling or Health and Human Services.  Children are referred for counseling if needed, and all parents are expected to attend parenting classes.  Because we are a faith-based program, residents are expected to participate in morning devotionals and at least one church service of their choice a week.
