Languille Emergency Shelter is a 12-week program that empowers homeless women to obtain the resources needed to become independent.
The program includes:
Women may stay for up to 12 weeks and are housed in shared rooms in a safe, comfortable setting.
- Basic Necessities:
We provide three meals a day, clothing, toiletries and other provisions.
- Case Management:
Case managers conduct an initial intake with each woman to assess her immediate needs and determine a plan for longer term housing, employment and health maintenance. Each resident must develop a personal plan for housing and finance and meets with a case manager at least once a week to discuss her progress.
- Job Development and Employment Services:
An on-staff job coach assists the residents with resume writing, interview skills and finding job openings. Between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., residents are encouraged to seek employment and supportive services outside the residence.
- Placement into Transitional or Permanent Housing:
Case managers assist the residents with securing permanent or transitional housing following their 12-week stay.
After a resident’s 12-week stay has concluded, she may take advantage of our aftercare support and continue to use the services of the Drop-In Program. Throughout this period, case managers maintain contact with the former residents to track their progress.
- Drop-In Services:
Women utilizing our drop-in services have the opportunity to go through an intake process and receive refarrals for housing, health care and other social services.
