Housing 4 Success (H4S), a Pierce County-wide effort to end youth and young adult homelessness, is recruiting for host homes in the community.
The program pairs a young person experiencing homelessness with a caring individual/family that has a spare bedroom and wants to make a difference. Host home providers receive support services from a housing specialist along with financial assistance.
H4S is a collaboration between Associated Ministries, the REACH Center, Shared Housing Services, Vadis, and Oasis, It is funded by Pierce County, the City of Tacoma and Tacoma Housing Authority.
The youth and young adults accepted into the H4S program are screened, given assessments to determine individual needs, and assigned to a case manager who helps them plan a way to achieve their goals. Each participant pursues educational and/or employment opportunities, takes life skills classes and meets regularly with their case manager.
Participants graduate once they’ve achieved their goals and can successfully live on their own without subsidy.
