Mission Statement

Values

  • Person-centered: with the needs and desires of the adult/family dictating the types and mix of services provided.
  • Recovery oriented: increasing health, wellness, resilience and self-sufficiency.

Referral Process

Any person or agency working with the homeless or near homeless may act as a sponsor.

Staffing Forms will be screened and staffed on a first-come/first-served basis. Applicant and sponsor will be notified of a staffing date and time.

The applicant and sponsor are expected to appear at the staffing unless other arrangements are made in advance.

The staffing will be done by multiple service providers. During the staffing an individual action plan will be developed. An advocate will be identified to assist the participant.

The progress of the participant will be reevaluated by AST after 60 days and for up to the first year.

At the end of the process, our goal is that each participant will have obtained and maintained permanent housing.
