SerVermont - Springfield Supported Housing Program
The mission of the Springfield Supported Housing Program (SSHP) is to place low- income families and individuals in permanent, affordable housing and provide six months to two years of in-home case management to stabilize housing, and to assist participants as they pursue other goals that improve their quality of life. SSHP works with individuals who are experiencing homelessness or low-income barriers. As an agency we are able to assist individuals who are behind in rent. We are also able to help households look for housing, complete applications, and provide financial support for security deposit once housing has been secured. This level of support alleviates poverty by providing financial support as well as case management that continues to help individuals increase their income or reduce their debt. SSHP also has a shelter program for those without housing. This program supports individuals who are homeless and without income to be able to get back on their feet with assistance. SSHP provides services to individuals and families located in the Northern Windham/ Southern Windsor counties who are at risk of homelessness or are experiencing literal homelessness. Our agency offers housing navigation, case management and landlord mediation. SSHP also helps to provide education and resources to those experiencing any of the factors leading to homelessness such as helping to connect to the local food pantry, referrals to health care, or recommendations to employment opportunities.
