In July 2015, Carpenter’s Shelter opened its first on-site permanent housing unit. We plan to have a total of four operational units by the end of FY 2016. The Permanent Housing units will provide individuals who struggle from multiple disabilities and barriers to independent living with a semi-independent living arrangement and supportive services. The tenants, if they choose, are able to participate in our Community Case Management program and have meals at the shelter. The private units will include a kitchenette and shared hallway bathrooms.
