DeeDee was released from incarceration to the Salvation Army in the middle of March 2020. She began visiting Harvest House’s Youth Drop-in center in May. In July, she moved into a transitional supportive housing unit reserved exclusively for female young adults ages 18-24. Just three months later, she was accepted into the New Heights long-term supportive housing program for young adults.
With DeeDee, we work closely with the CTC Support team (Comprehensive Treatment Court through Centerstone Behavioral Health); they visit her weekly ensuring that wrap-around services remain in place! It is truly a pleasure to watch this young lady recognize her own potential, and even better to watch her achieve goals that she has set in place for herself! Her academic achievements are nothing short of inspiring as well. She is a very proud student at SCF racking up straight As in the Spring 2021 semester.
When she moved into New Heights, she decorated her room with canvases that she painted herself. Some were crafted during her time at the drop-in center and one she created while on one of our monthly youth outings. She used an Amazon gift card that was gifted to us through a generous donor and bought things for her room. She takes pride in her space and you can absolutely tell that her room reflects the newfound peace in her life.

Submitting an application does not guarantee housing. Our goal is to serve as many families as possible, but due to limitations, we select those with the highest acuity of need first. We hold applications for 6 months in case an opening fits the needs of each applicant over that time period.
Home Again is a housing program that helps families prepare for long-term housing stability. The best fit for the program is families that have many challenges to housing, but are willing to engage with the program to improve their housing situation. Families must be willing to set goals, meet regularly with a case manager, attend life skills classes, and participate in individual housing stability plans.
