While some are busy purchasing gifts this holiday season, so many remain without a home. Giving Hope’s Permanent Supportive Housing program, Turning Point, assists individuals with disabilities in finding a long term home. This program works with individuals with disabilities and those who need long-term supportive services to ensure housing stability and prevent them from returning to homelessness. Our case manager assesses their needs and works with them through the move in process, assists them in finding a job, and even makes sure they have food on the table. We follow up every step of the way to ensure timely and appropriate intervention when necessary.
This long term approach not only pulls individuals out of the cycle of poverty and homelessness, but empowers them to continue to grow and feel supported along their journey. Giving Hope works to change lives permanently rather than simply providing temporary shelter. Move-ins are an essential part of our Turning Point program as individuals who have often been homeless for years are welcomed into a furnished home. Giving Hope provides them with grocery assistance, household goods, cleaning supplies, and safety supplies to ensure they are able to become self-sufficient and comfortable. These services allow a comfortable transition for these individuals as they experience extreme change and adjust to their new life.
To assist with our move-ins, we need help from the community! We are launching our Home for the Holidays campaign to give you an opportunity to help those experiencing homelessness in Denton County during the season of giving. For our Home for the Holidays, Giving Hope is asking YOU to help provide for these individuals. Go online and donate, explore our amazon wishlists (listed below), or even sign up to volunteer! Everyone deserves a home this winter, so help us make more move-ins possible this holiday season!
