Wraparound Services is here!
Housing Forward is always working to ensure our services meet the complex needs of the individuals and families we assist. To that goal, we have established a team of specialists and case workers in our brand-new Wraparound Services Program!
What is the Wraparound Services Program?
Wraparound Services is our approach to personalized services that will strengthen our ability to support our clients in building long-term stability and improved quality of life.
Why create the Wraparound Services Program?
It’s rare that homelessness and housing crisis are solely housing issues exclusively. Most often, they stem from a variety of factors, including mental health, domestic violence, substance use, financial crisis, employment instability/unemployment, and others. Housing alone does not resolve the situation. If the issues that resulted in the housing crisis are left unaddressed, it’s likely they’ll recur and undermine longer-term housing stability.
Who makes up the team?
Housing Forward’s Wraparound Services team includes a variety of specialists and case managers who support clients in addressing a variety of challenges and issues.
