Project Independence

Project Independence is a HUD funded Rapid Rehousing Program designed to assist individuals and families quickly transition from literal homelessness to stability as quickly as possible. Once in the program participants work with a case manager and sometimes volunteer mentors to overcome the barriers that caused them to become homeless in the first place. To apply for the program you must be interviewed in person or over the phone to determine whether or not you meet the HUD guidelines for eligibility. There is a waiting list for the program based on a point system reflecting severity of need rather than length of time on the list. Homeless, without a job, no money and without hope is usually where folks are when they began the journey back.
