Most Recent Audit
Feed: We served an average of 12,000 meals each month to the public and our residents. Just over 300 volunteers per month helped us to prepare and serve the meals. House: We celebrated the one year anniversary of our participation in the Housing First program. Through Housing First, we help clients who have experienced long-term homelessness move into their own apartments and continued to support them with case management. Since August 2010, we have placed 111 men and women in the community. Empower: Duing the summer of 2011, our Day by Day program for drug and alcohol addiction was licensed by the State as "an enhanced co-occurring program." As a result, we brought mental health services in-house, allowing clients to receive both chemical dependency and mental health counseling on-site. We hired five new staff members with experience in co-occurring treatment. Research has shown programs that treat both conditions simultaneously and in the same location are most effective.
