Organization Information

Mission Statement

We welcome adults at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Working collaboratively, we provide access to a spectrum of care that supports each person’s transition to the most independent living possible--including emergency shelter, programs and services, and affordable and supported housing.

Description

Every person’s story is as unique as the situation that brings them to our doors. For many, homelessness is the only option when affordable housing is out of reach, or income has been lost due to illness or having to flee an unsafe situation. Often, experiences of trauma, especially in early childhood, leave a lasting impact on a person’s mental and physical health. Regardless of what led a person to the DI, our goal is to make their time with us as short as possible.

Experiencing homelessness and lacking the basic necessities of life leads to disproportionally high rates of health issues, like substance use. As the drug crisis continues to escalate, we have added additional supports including a drug poisoning response program, detox and recovery transition programs, which together provide new pathways to treatment, recovery and ultimately housing.
