With funding provided by the County of Santa Clara, Destination: Home launched the Housing Stability & Wellness Grants Program in February 2016. We encourage local service providers to develop and implement programs that will increase housing stability, wellness, and promote meaningful daily activities for clients participating in permanent supportive housing programs. Our partner agencies have adopted a Housing-First philosophy and have been working together to house chronically homeless men and women, some of whom had been homeless for more than 15 years. For many clients there is a recovery process as they adjust to being housed. The loss of stability, social roles, routines, and the uncertainty of where to sleep or find the next meal is a traumatic experience exacerbated by years on the streets.
