Homeless Initiative
Our Homeless Initiative aims to provide compassionate care and support to individuals experiencing homelessness in our community. We believe that homelessness is not a choice, but rather the result of complex societal and economic factors that require holistic solutions.

We seek to address the root causes of homelessness through a multi-pronged approach:

  • Outreach programs to connect with unsheltered individuals and provide basic necessities like food, water, and clothing.
  • Connecting individuals with emergency shelter services to get people off the streets and into a safe, warm environment.
  • Helping individuals find transitional housing programs to provide stable interim housing and support services.
  • Connecting individuals with permanent supportive housing to offer long-term affordable housing with on-site case management.
  • Job training and placement assistance to help individuals secure steady employment.
  • Helping individuals find Mental health care and addiction treatment to address underlying issues contributing to homelessness.

Through direct street outreach and partnerships with local government agencies, we identify individuals experiencing chronic homelessness and provide customized care plans. Our goal is to not just temporarily reduce homelessness, but end it entirely in our community.

We measure the success of our homeless initiatives by tracking metrics such as:

  • Number of people transitioned into permanent housing
  • Job placement rates for program participants
  • Rate of returns to homelessness after program completion
  • Improvements in physical and mental health status

With adequate funding and community support, we believe we can make significant progress toward eliminating homelessness in our city within the next 3-5 years.

His Haven Ministry Outreach Center/Southside

His Haven's "Homeless Block"

At our Southside Outreach Center, we work closely with individuals experiencing homelessness to help guide them on a path out of poverty. We provide food, clothing, personal care services, and critical guidance to help meet their immediate needs.

However, we recognize that long-term solutions are also needed to truly set people free from homelessness. That is why we are renovating a section of our Southside building to create a comprehensive care facility specifically focused on helping the homeless transition to self-sufficiency.

In this new facility, homeless individuals will be able to:

  • Receive a hot meal of nutritious food and groceries to go
  • Obtain donated clothing and personal care items
  • Shower, shave, and get a haircut
  • Meet with our team of navigators who provide counseling, job training referrals, housing assistance, and other social services

Most importantly, these individuals will have a supportive community walking alongside them each step of the way until they secure employment, find stable housing, and reintegrate back into society.  They will also be given the opportunity to plug into a local church where they will find additional support and develop friendships.

Transforming lives in this way is not easy, but we believe it is our calling. We depend on the generous support of donors and volunteers to make this expanded outreach possible. With your help, we can create a world where no one has to sleep on the streets and everyone has the chance to reach their full potential.
