Share ASPIRE—Achieving Self-sufficiency Personal Improvement and Resource Education—is a coordinated system for providing case management, housing and connection to supportive services in our community for homeless families and individuals.
ASPIRE serves an average of 100 households each month and maintains a 75% success rate for moving people into permanent housing.
Those eligible for ASPIRE include families, disabled individuals and honorably discharged veterans. Applicants must be homeless or at risk of homelessness at the time of application and contact the Housing Solutions Center to apply.
ASPIRE offers resource education for: employment training, family counseling, debt reduction, budgeting, drug/alcohol abuse, domestic violence, counseling, mental health, education, parenting, life skills, childcare referral and transportation.
In the Fall of 2010, the ASPIRE program expanded with the purchase of four homes to provide transitional and permanent housing for single individuals.
One home serves single men, two serve single women and one serves Veterans.
