Our goal is to help families avoid homelessness or transition to permanent housing by providing housing and transformational services that promote housing stability. Our program consists of a tiered model which includes, short term financial assistance, progressive engagement, housing stability support services, such as classes on financial literacy, employment readiness, and parenting
Tier 1 Situational Homelessness
Tier 2 Situational to Chronic Homelessness
Tier 3 Chronic or Cultural Homelessness
Classes and case management are provided to address the barriers to self-sufficiency and housing stability and include education and vocational training, life skills development, employment, parenting and health and wellness. We believe that by helping people develop their God-given gifts and talents, they will create sustainable change for themselves and will be able to support themselves and their families into the future.
Vision House’s current transitional housing program provides a stable, supportive environment along with the time needed for residents to transition to permanent housing. The current program is designed as an individual housing situation in which families occupy and are responsible for their own unit and household duties yet receive encouragement and support from other residents as well as from Vision House staff through case management, bi-monthly house meetings and an optional Bible study.
Vision House’s goal is to coordinate the successful reintegration of these families back into the community through a range of services tailored to the individual’s and families’ needs, which may include the following: education, life skills, money management skills, parenting skills, counseling, discipleship, employment, permanent housing referrals and the building of self-esteem. Residents are required to meet regularly with case managers to develop these skills and to remain accountable in reaching their goals. The complexes are located Renton and Shoreline. Referrals are screened for need, based on the following:
Resident or resident family agrees to pay Vision House thirty percent (30%) of their net adjusted monthly income. Each resident or resident family also pays a share of the phone bill cost of the program. Residents are required to turn in all pay stubs or other financial information to determine their monthly rent amount.
