A Better Program for Chronically Homeless Persons
NPI’s newest program, Safe Haven has offered housing for chronically homeless individuals with mental illness since fall 2007. When a person has been homeless for a year or more, or has had a pattern of homelessness for several years, recovery may have special requirements. The Safe Haven philosophy brings a customer into housing first, and then encourages him or her to pursue needed services. Individuals move forward on their own terms, following their own plan toward their goals. Staff is on-site for assistance and support. This facility of 12 apartment homes is located in the central city just west of downtown Toledo.
