Permanent Supportive Housing

La Casa partners with the Mary Elizabeth Inn to ensure that residents of San Francisco’s two women-only subsidized housing sites, where formerly homeless women can live permanently, have access to emotional and practical support services.  On-site case management encourages each woman to build upon the momentum of her newly stable housing to address underlying vulnerabilities related to experiences of trauma, domestic violence, sexual assault, substance abuse, and job readiness.  Staff provide advocacy, counseling, and referrals to empower residents to sustain their independent housing, build skills and community, and continue to move through the healing process toward permanently violence-free lives.  With La Casa’s support, many residents make strides into independence and self-sufficiency.
