The Center also provides case management services to the singles and families who reside in the supportive housing development located at 85 New Haven Avenue also known as Liberty Pointe.
Beth-El works from a strength-based and solution-oriented perspective to empower the homeless and help them achieve independence and self-sufficiency. Our clients range from veterans and elderly to people working through unemployment, illness, catastrophic events, addictions and mental health issues.
The Center's shelter program focuses on supporting residents while they work to achieve individualized goals such as obtaining housing, employment, education and/or training. We work with resident to help them establish connections to community-based support services that will lead to greater success in meeting life's daily challenges.
Our shelter provides the stability necessary to achieve established goals in a home-like environment along with compassionate staff support. The shelter provides dormitory-style living for single men and women, and individual bedrooms with community-style living for families. Our supportive housing case manager applies our strength-based and solution-oriented approach when working with residents in order to assist them with access to the resources necessary to maintain their housing.
