Common Ground Community Housing Development Fund

Posted on September 23, 2013

To support a Stabilization Case Manager position for the Homeless Veterans Outreach & Housing Pilot Program developed in collaboration with the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) and aimed at intensifying efforts to end homelessness among veterans. The program, which is being implemented by Common Ground and two other service providers, will link at least 180 homeless veterans living on the streets and in shelters throughout the five boroughs to transitional and/or permanent housing. The Stabilization Case Manager will work at multiple sites where DHS-issued stabilization beds are located, providing intensive case management to clients during sensitive periods of placement in temporary housing when risk of returning to streets is greatest and assisting them with fulfilling various prerequisites for acquiring permanent housing.
