Emergency Shelter Services
New Beginnings Emergency Shelter Services are for families, couples and singles who are experiencing homelessness. The program includes intensive case management and provides job search guidance.All of the clients staying in scattered site shelter work closely with their case manager to develop family goal plans that identify short- and long-term objectives with timelines for overcoming barriers to self-sufficiency. Clients coming into the program must be willing and able to work, or be able to attain sufficient income to move towards independence. Preference is given to families with a minor child in their custody

Transitional Housing
Two and three-bedroom units are available for up to two years to families who are homeless or near homeless. Case management is required in this program, which gives families more time and supportive services so they can save money and improve their earnings ability before having to support their families in a market-rate environment. Our children's program addresses the special developmental, social and academic needs of children who have been homeless. The cost of rent is based on income.


    You must be able to work legally in the United States and have income.
    For Emergency Shelter Services and Transitional Living, you must be homeless by HUD standards.

Housing Assessment

Our Family Services participates in the community wide Coordinated Entry assessment and referral system to fill openings in our homeless housing programs. That system includes a general assessment of housing needs and resources and prioritizes completing VI-SPADT (Vulnerability Index - Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool) assessment application tools for households that:
             1) are literally homeless (on streets, in vehicle, at emergency shelter, etc.); or
             2) are imminently at risk of homelessness with no place to stay within 1 or 2 days; or
             3) are in a dangerous situation (e.g., trafficking, high-risk domestic violence, etc.); or
             4) include head of households who are youth/young adults ages 18 to 24 years old.

Such households complete the VI-SPADT assessment application tool and the and HMIS system consent form.
