Housing

The Fourth & Hope housing program provides permanent supportive housing and transitional housing. The program’s goal is to place families into housing as quickly as possible to provide stability and recovery from a crisis. This program includes supportive services such as classes on household budgeting, how to be a good tenant, and employment skills. In 2018, 50 people found housing through our program, including 21 children and youth in families experiencing homelessness. Leaving domestic violence was the cause of homelessness for 20% of persons served, and 68% of the participants had a chronic mental or physical health condition.

Population(s) Served
Homeless people
Economically disadvantaged, low-income, and poor people
Budget

Our treatment services are located at Walter’s House, next door to the emergency shelter. This residential substance abuse program had a 48% success rate for participants staying for more than 14 days to establish a life free from drugs, leading to employment, and stable housing. We operate using a ‘Therapeutic Community Model’ where clients begin to understand how their decisions and behaviors affect everyone around them. We address distorted thinking patterns and low self-opinion, and help clients experience recovery from addictive behaviors, while establishing a life free from drugs. In 2015 and again in 2018, we achieved accreditation by CARF – Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. This accreditation designates Walter’s House as meeting internationally recognized standards for substance abuse treatment and demonstrates our commitment to improving the lives of the people we serve.

The Fourth & Hope emergency shelter provides year-round shelter nightly. We are the designated shelter for Yolo County. In 2018, Fourth & Hope provided emergency shelter to 280 men, women, and children. Separate dorms are provided for men and women, and families sleep together in the dining area. The median length of stay is 84 days, and 49% of shelter guests exited to a positive housing destination. We provide case management services that connect our shelter guests with the appropriate resources and services to meet individual and family comprehensive health and human needs. Guests are required to follow a case plan specific to the individual. The case plan outlines the path to housing and may involve strategies to pay past debt and credit rehabilitation, save money for a rental deposit, secure reliable transportation, connect with services such as enrolling in SNAP, and other strategies for self-sufficiency. Parents are required to enroll their children in school and assure that they are in attendance. In late 2018, we partnered with the City of Woodland and County of Yolo to open up a temporary shelter (Extended Hope) across from Fourth & Hope to provide additional beds for people needing a safe, dry place to sleep. We will operate this shelter through June 2019. For a second year, in 2019, we provided services for families needing shelter in January and February of this year in partnership with a community of volunteers from Woodland churches. We are currently in discussion with the City of Woodland and Friends of the Mission in the planning of a larger emergency shelter that will double our capacity, and provide much needed temporary housing.
