All Deborah’s Place participants have access to support services designed to meet the diverse needs of women who have experienced homelessness. These services offer different pathways to stability, independence and opportunities for a better quality of life.
Comprehensive Case Management
Participant-directed case management assists women in meeting goals they have established for themselves. Case managers use asset-based approach emphasizing individual strengths so participants can be linked to resources to help them reach stability and self-sufficiency.
Through mini-health clinics, Deborah’s Place coordinates participant healthcare and provides referrals to free or low-cost health services. On-site healthcare and health education reduce health crises that require costly emergency room visits and help women who have not accessed traditional healthcare due to barriers like lack of health insurance, mental illness, substance use and resistance to care.
Employment and Education Services
Learning Centers are located in our Permanent Housing locations. There, women can access internet-enabled computers, group activities and one-on-one engagement with staff and volunteers. These opportunities provide women access to the humanities, life and job skills training, social-emotional development and basic adult education.
Counseling, crisis intervention and art therapy help women recover from mental illness, addictions and trauma.
Participants who have moved on from our housing programs are provided access to case management services that assist in the transition away from supportive housing. These services act as a safety net, helping to maintain stability and reduce chances of a return to homelessness.
