Overview of Care Corps:

Care Corps Family Services' mission is to provide a place of shelter, support & services-for homeless and near-homeless individuals and families-by empowering them to achieve independence, stability and life-long enrichment through community collaborations. Care Corps addresses the underlying causes of a person's homelessness through case management so they can move themselves and their families out of poverty and homelessness. Care Corps operates three housing programs--rapid re-housing, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing--while also operating a 24-hour-a-day, 60-bed emergency shelter, providing a safe and secure environment for those in need. Care Corps also has a prevention/after-care program to wrap services around families so they never have to enter the shelter and to prevent families from becoming homeless after they leave the shelter. No matter which program clients are in, all are provided intensive case management, therapy, life skills programming and more. Care Corps works as a united force with other community agencies in order to best meet the needs of those living in extreme poverty.

Program Impact:

Care Corps supports more than 700 unduplicated individuals annually. Last year, Care Corps served 145 children just through the emergency shelter. In 2017, Care Corps prevented 33 households from becoming homeless. Eighty-two percent of clients who left the shelter moved into a home of their own, while 67% of clients maintained or increased their income while in the shelter. These measures show that case managers are truly making an impact in the lives of those Care Corps serves by addressing client's underlying barriers, whether that be underemployment, addiction, mental health concerns, or health concerns. In 2017, Care Corps provided 528 therapy sessions and provided 72 vouchers for individuals to receive much-needed health care through Good Neighbor, the local health clinic. Care Corps provided 43,783 meals through church and community meal providers. Care Corps serves 61 households through its housing programs: Rapid Re-Housing, Transitional Housing, and Permanent Supportive Housing.

In 2017, Care Corps provided hot showers, life skills training, case management, therapy, and three meals a day for these individuals and families 24 hours a day, every single day. Today we are asking for your financial help to provide this same shelter and services for as many or more people in 2018. Care Corps keeps its doors open to the most vulnerable people in our area only through the help of caring and generous people like you. The Care Corps staff, board of directors, and the people needing Care Corps services say THANK YOU for your generous gifts!
