For the past 30 years we have provided emergency housing to those experiencing homelessness in the region. But we know it’s not enough.
The current system is complex and exhausting to navigate. Resources are spread across the county. For someone living in the crisis of homelessness, getting connected to all the resources they truly need becomes another weight on their shoulders.
But not anymore.
We have an intimate knowledge and understanding of the challenges they face. And we are doing something about it.
At Wayfinders, we want to end homelessness. We know that’s a big vision, but we are passionate about it.
To accomplish this, we need to rethink how we help our homeless neighbors. They need more than emergency housing. They need guidance to access the services and resources that will help them overcome the challenges at the heart of their homelessness.
The good news is that these resources exist.
The bad news…they are rarely offered in one place, leaving people to coordinate with multiple organizations to get the help they need. These organizations are physically spread throughout the community, and lack of transportation often makes access to these services even more difficult. In the end, persons struggling with homelessness feel overwhelmed trying to piece everything together while living in crisis mode on their own.
Anyone Fighting Homelessness Should Have Access to Streamlined Services to take back Control of Their Life.
That’s our mission.
We are here to guarantee they never feel they are alone. We help by being a bridge and a guide to resources and services necessary to those fighting homelessness.
We hope you will join us in that mission! Because of the support of our partners, individuals and families experiencing homelessness can stop wondering where they will sleep day after day and whether life will ever get better. Generational homelessness can be broken.
In its place, they will start to discover self-confidence and hope that will help them not only take back control but also transform their lives.
