DIRECT SUPPORT SERVICES
Pillars goes beyond shelter by providing individuals & families with resources through a number of programs. Each program, while unique to a specific population, shares the common goals of securing and maintaining a home.
Pillars Street Outreach Program
Pillars Street Outreach Program connects individuals experiencing homelessness, who are also living with severe and persistent mental illness and/or co-occurring substance use disorders, to housing and community resources.
Pillars Diversion Program
Pillars Diversion Program is designed to eliminate the need to enter shelter by providing case management services off-site to individuals and families who are doubled-up with another household or precariously housed.
Pillars Case Management Program

In addition to Street Outreach and Diversion, direct support includes Shelter Client Advocates, Social Security Assistance, Generalized Case Management, Addiction Recovery, Mental Health and Peer Support, Housing Stabilization and Tenant Relations.
