Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Because we believe the only true end to homelessness is a safe and stable place to call home, we serve the homeless and "at-risk" in an attempt to help them into a home and obtain housing stability.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Homeless Prevention

The Homeless Prevention Program provides rental assistance, utility assistance and supportive services directly related to the prevention of homelessness to eligible individuals and families who are in danger of eviction, foreclosure or homelessness. The program is designed to stabilize individuals and families in their existing homes.
o Persons who may be eligible include households that are in immediate danger of eviction, foreclosure or homelessness or are currently homeless. The household must document a temporary economic crisis beyond its control and must be able to demonstrate an ability to meet the prospective rental/utility obligations after the assistance has been granted based on current or anticipated income.
o Household must be renting their home (within Pontotoc County, OK). Homeowners are not eligible.
o Households below 30% of the Area Median Income for Pontotoc County.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

The Rapid Re-Housing program is an intensive fast-moving housing and stabilization program intended to move literally homeless individuals and families off the street and into permanent housing as rapidly as possible. This approach is guided by the belief that people need basic necessities like food and a place to live before attending to anything less critical, such as getting a job, budgeting properly, or attending to substance use issues.
o ONLY Persons who are determined to be Literally Homeless or Fleeing/Attempting to Flee Domestic Violence (documentation required).

Population(s) Served
Homeless people

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We believe everyone deserves a home. We believe that with a little help everyone in Pontotoc County can have access to safe, affordable permanent housing.

Through financial assistance and life-skills training we believe everyone can have a place of their own.
Rapid Re-Housing is an AHS program for the literally homeless which will help them find a home, rent a home and ultimately maintain housing stability. Homeless Prevention is a program for those extremely low-income clients that are "at-risk" of eviction. With financial assistance from AHS, most are able to maintain the housing they are in and avoid eviction and advert a larger crisis.

With an annual Emergency Solutions Grant from HUD as well as other matching grant dollars we are able to focus 75% of every dollar on direct client services and case management. Being established in 2003, AHS is well-know for the work we do in our community.

We track several outcomes:
Number of households accessing prevention services (HP) that maintained permanent housing: Q1+Q2=74 households
(Proposed 2018-19 Outcome 75 households)
Number of households accessing housing services that enter permanent housing:Q1+Q2=46 households
(Proposed 2018-19 outcome = 35 households)
Number of households accessing homeless assistance (ES, HP, RRH) services increase or maintain their income upon exit: Q1+Q2=28 households
(Proposed 2018-19 outcome = 75 households)

  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
