The Heartland Homes & Transitions program provides long-term housing and supportive services on site for individuals and families who are chronically homeless.
This program specifically serves those who have a disability and either have been homeless continuously for a year or more, or who have had at least four episodes of homelessness in the past three years.
Heartland Homes & Transitions is designed to serve individuals who have experienced long-term homelessness with significant barriers to stable housing. The ultimate goal is to provide safe, stable housing and the opportunity for participants to become self-sufficient. The unique aspect of this program is that supportive services address the root causes of homelessness and help participants maintain permanent housing, as well as prevent any recurrence of homelessness.
