The Salvation Army's Finally Home transition-in-place program assists families and individuals to secure permanent housing. The residents sign an apartment lease and the Army pays rent and utilities. Through social services and careful case management the program creates a stable and dignified living environment that supports clients' ability to live independently. It can minimize the number of moves and avoid a shelter stay reducing disruption, which is especially beneficial to children. It is not unusual for children to be in the program and not even be aware that the family is homeless. The maximum time allowed to participate in the program is 24 months, with most households able to achieve independence after 12 to 15 months.
Case management is required for all participants in the housing program to help them find long-term solutions to their current situations (unemployment, paying off debt, or securing disability or other benefits). Individualized counseling services are provided weekly by licensed Salvation Army social workers, and referrals for services from other community providers are offered at the Family Services offices. Rigorous case plans are developed for each individual with set goals to obtain the skills and employment necessary to achieve housing, food, and financial independence and stability.
