How Homeless Continuum of Care Programs integrate with other Community Partners
Homeless continuum of care programs in Houston collaborate to improve utilization of healthcare and law enforcement resources by homeless individuals and families. The continuum of care network also works to quickly rehome those who are suffering from homelessness, all while minimizing the trauma surrounding this unfortunate life event.
Houston Recovery Center supports these goals by formally partnering with local law enforcement, medical and mission organizations. We provide resources that eliminate the need for homeless substance abuse clients to continually face law enforcement action, instead providing a positive environment for them to grow and overcome substance abuse challenges.
Our criminal justice program further assists those who are suffering from substance abuse in jail, preparing them for release and providing intensive support through the Partners in Recovery Program after they leave.
Our Houston homeless continuum of care program has made a difference for hundreds of area clients. Do you want to get involved or support our efforts? Contact us today to learn more about how you can help!
