The purpose of the Reach for Home Transitional Housing Program is to provide opportunities and support for Participants to work toward self-sufficiency, independence and permanent housing. Participants work with a Program Manager to help them access resources and services that will help them make necessary changes in their lives. Further, the Program offers Participants the opportunity to develop a good credit history and positive rental history, to gain self-confidence and to become self-sufficient.

Reach for Home Program

Programs for the homeless in Northern Sonoma county. Outreach, First Step Housing, Family Transitional Program, and Rapid Re-Housing.

 
The Reach for Home Program is based on four main pillars: Outreach, First Step Housing, Family Transitional Program, and Rapid Re-Housing. The goal of our programs is for our clients to create a path to find long-term housing, generate income, achieve sobriety, and build functional life skills. On average, each client spends approximately two years in our services.

 
Outreach
Outreach

Our Outreach Team builds foundational trust with our clients by visiting them daily. We provide basic food and supplies, and eventually move to transporting individuals and families to medical and mental health appointments so that our clients can improve their overall health and welness. Ultimately, we work to prepare our clients for housing by working with them to gain a source of stable income.

First Step Housing
First Step Housing

When our Outreach clients are ready to transition to living full-time in our services, we refer them to Sonoma County Coordinated Entry. This program gives our clients emergency shelter and a safe place off the streets. The first step of this process lasts up to six months as we prepare our clients to enter our other programs: Family Transitional Housing, Rapid Re-Housing, or partner-supplied permanent supportive housing.

Family Transitional Housing
Family Transitional Housing

We provide sober-living apartments for families with children. There, they can live for up to 12 months while we empower them with the skills necessary to return to stable housing. Reach for Home case managers work with our clients to develop financial know-how, build resumes, practice effective parenting, and advance other essential life skills.

Rapid Re-Housing
Rapid Re-Housing

Clients enter Rapid Re-Housing from the First Step and Family Transitional Housing phases, or are referred by other agencies. The goal is to help clients improve their income profiles so they can return to financial independence. Over a nine-month period, clients receive decreasing amounts of short-term rent subsidies as they acclimate to budgeting rent and building self-sufficent habits before they successfully transition out to paying market-rate rents.

The Reach for Home staff teams with clients to meet important milestones on the road to stable housing. Case Managers create personal action plans, provide living spaces, and teach families and individuals financials skills. While working on their Skills for Life, clients are able to increase income levels so that by the time they reach the end of their stay, they can attain successful housing outcomes.
