Home Safe Program
Home Safe: a permanent supportive housing program partially funded through a HUD grant that provides housing to 60 previously chronic homeless households. The program has served over 300 clients throughout Jacksonville since 2005 by providing safe housing while empowering them with the opportunity to regain control of their lives. We offer case management support & assist them with finding employment or receiving benefits, & when appropriate, and direct them to rehabilitation programs when deemed necessary.
In 2019, PSM Home Safe program included 3 families with children. 12 are employed, 22 are receiving SS benefits, 5 are on the PSM's Advisory Board, 2 are currently enrolled in school and 1 volunteers at another local nonprofit.
In the 2020-2021 time frame, our most challenging period, the pandemic couldn’t stop us from our work. The housing programs served a total of 64 previously homeless individuals. 91% of them stayed housed within the year.
