HOUSING ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH

Our buildings house people. Our support services keep them housed.

CRUCIAL SUPPORT

WHCHC staff delivers support that helps residents live independently. We assess their needs, link them to critical resources, and provide lifelong learning and cultural enrichment programs. We have a dedicated team of full-time professionals who are staffed on-site at our communities. Linguistically and culturally competent services are customized for each property. Critical resources include physical and mental health, transportation, food, benefits, rental assistance, and other supportive services. All are voluntary and at no cost to the residents.

WHCHC identifies external collaborative partners to maximize impact and to strengthen outcomes for residents. This coordination results in services that are delivered in a truly seamless fashion rather than a series of referrals and hand-offs from one service provider to another. Programs and partners provide support to all residents from reading, art and STEAM programs for children and teens, to gardening, nutrition and financial literacy for adults, to exercise, engage your brain, and anti-isolation activities for seniors.

We would be on the street if it were not for WHCHC. Now our story has a new ending: My son started college this year, a first for our family, and he is studying to become a firefighter.
