What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The primary causes of homelessness are poverty from a lack of jobs, inadequate public support, lack of affordable transportation and housing and lack of affordable health care, mental health and substance abuse treatment. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration 30% of chronic homelessness have a serious mental health issue and 67% have abuse challenges. These problems are the reason why they consistently do the same things over and over again. Educational and counseling are the remedies for this dilemma so the proper interventions can be made and residents will be prepared to make wiser choices upon leaving the program. Recidivism rates for men released from treatment or jail, with no subsequent housing or supportive services are 67% for rearrests within 3 years of their release from prison, and 60% for returns to using drugs within three years. This level of recidivism is a large contributing factor to chronic homelessness. There is no other program

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are dedicated to assisting men to rebuild their lives by holding them accountable, providing transitional housing, education, stability, and encouragement by promoting a sense of community and brotherhood on the campus. We are a program that requires the men to have community based employment, save money, where applicable pay child support, and take personal and financial responsibility.

1. Pre-admission psychological evaluation to determine mental health issues and the appropriateness for acceptance. (If admission is not granted we attempt a referral to another appropriate agency)
2. Financial Stability provides residents professional on-site counseling, one on one and group, to provide them with the skills to become employable and financially stable. We utilize psychotherapy to establish a frame work on which to build the following skills:
-Goal setting
-Communication skills
-Coping techniques
-Personal accountability/ responsibility
-Consequences of ones actions
-To save money

The residents learn the necessary skills to have sustainable employment, financial stability, and meaningful relationships (re-establish relations with children/ family).

Camp Haven has a 25 bed residential facility in Vero Beach. Here we are able to conduct onsite training programs that focus on life skills, psychological counseling, physical fitness, and vocational guidance all focused on building self-esteem and independence. Our programs are taught by community leaders and staff
.
We also conduct preadmission screenings that include background checks, drug test, and psychological evaluation. This is critical in determining which candidates have the greatest likely hood have program success and ultimately being reintegrated into the community. Candidates that do not qualify are referred to other agencies and programs and maybe reconsidered at a future date.

We also work with a number of community partners to assist with vocational training, job placement, and medical services. This allows us to leverage available community resources without overburdening the organization and maximize the benefits for the residents.

Since opening in 2014 Camp Haven has provided services to 174 homeless or at risk men in Indian River County Florida. We have an 80%+ graduation of men that have successfully completed the program.

We are currently developing a program to voluntarily track graduates after they have left the program to determine their current status. This data will be used to assist us in determination of program effectiveness and what we could do better. It will also allow for outreach so that the men can be assisted post graduation if needed.
