The Home Stabilization program provides an array of time-limited services, including home tenancy support, life skill training, and other modeling and teaching services for individuals who require support in maintaining a home, and home find services to individuals who require support in securing, and transitioning to housing.

Services are intended to be flexible and support recipients in becoming self-sufficient with their housing needs. Home Stabilization services promote positive health outcomes and housing retention.
