At PADS, we meet the basic needs of homeless individuals first. We provide a safe place to sleep, meals, shower and laundry facilities and personal hygiene products. The next step is to provide comprehensive case management.
Case managers meet with each guest and together, an action plan is created by identifying the barriers which led to the person becoming homeless. Action plans are tailored to each individual and may include money management, life skills, assistance with securing a GED, housing searches or referrals to outside services such as substance abuse or mental health counseling.
Thanks to our team, each year we have a greater than 70% exit shelter success rate which is three (3) times the national average.
Case management services are available daily between 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM and seven (7) nights a week between 7:00 PM-9:30 PM.
In our last fiscal year, we provided 14,760 nights of shelter and 26,568 meals to 421 unduplicated men, women and children.
