Housing Success

Currently, homeless clients totaled more than 70% of all TCCVM users. These individuals and families--many with less than ideal rental histories, mental illness, chemical dependency or other health problems--were all searching for a place to call home in a housing market with no slack.

In 2009, fortunately, 65% of TCCVM's clients were able to locate housing. Voice mail provided a link to potential landlords, helping smooth out at least one bump in the road.

One client's story . . .
"I found permanent housing with help from TCCVM. I use my voice mail to stay in touch with my health care provider, case worker, financial worker, friends and family. My employer can leave me messages and my grandmother, who has my two children, can also leave me messages."
