Programs and Services
Are you, or is someone you know, in need of housing or help with addictions, dependencies, domestic violence, etc.? Vision House is a Christian service agency* that provides transitional housing and case management in two separate programs. One program is for homeless families, primarily mothers and their children. A separate program is for homeless men recovering from drug and alcohol addictions.
Since Vision House began in 1990, more than 750 men, women and children have benefited from our housing, case management services and recovery groups.
The Family Program provides transitional housing and case management for homeless families (primarily mothers) with children. Residents are encouraged to stay 18 months to two years to receive the support and education they need to help them move into permanent housing and provide sufficiently for themselves and their families. Longer stays are allowed when obtaining a four-year degree. Residents are required to abide by the Vision House no tolerance policy to drug and alcohol use and to meet with their case manager weekly to set up goals, outline action plans, and receive support and accountability in reaching their goals. Our goal is to integrate families back into the community by providing life skills and parenting classes; money management assistance; counseling; mentoring; children's activities; and access to medical and dental care, childcare and transportation.
The Men's Program is a group-housing situation that provides a stable environment for homeless men who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. Residents are required to abide by the Vision House no tolerance policy to drug and alcohol use during their 12 to 24 month stay. Case managers meet weekly with residents, both in groups and individually, to support them in their sobriety, treatment plans, and their pursuit of educational and career goals. Residents receive life skills classes; mentoring; referrals for medical and dental needs; counseling; and assistance in obtaining vocational or academic training.
* Although Vision House was founded on Christian principles and provides optional Bible studies for adults and children, there are no mandatory spiritual activities for residents. Vision House does not discriminate against housing applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, familial status, sexual preference, or physical or mental disability.
