RESCUE IN MOTION
PERMANENT SUPPORTING HOUSING
A drive through Houston’s popular intersections or a walk through one of its parks is all it takes to realize that there is still much to be done in the battle to address homelessness in our community. Change Happens!, in its commitment to providing a hand up to the disenfranchised within the community, operates three permanent housing programs through its adult services division that assist chronically homeless men and women with disabilities in their quest to change their lives.
In an effort to educate and empower those seeking assistance, the Homeless Outreach Services Department provides case management to program participants through the following programs that promote self-sufficiency, independence, and, ultimately, long-term residential stability. The purpose of the Rescue in Motion program is to help homeless individuals obtain permanent housing and provide them with the skills needed to avoid recidivism.
The RESCUE In Motion Permanent Housing Program 2.0 provides case management, a wide array of supportive services, and rental subsidies to 68 chronically homeless men and women with a documented disabling condition who reside in scattered site housing throughout Harris County.
