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

Almost Home

Almost Home is a transitional housing program for homeless women and their children.
Almost Home seeks to decrease barriers to housing stability by providing homeless women and children with a safe, comfortable living space with trained, compassionate staff and volunteers. Families are provided a private room and bath for an average of nine months. AAHS can shelter six families at any given time.

A qualified case manager provides comprehensive ongoing case management services for each resident. Together, they develop an individualized case plan including agreed upon goals for achieving independence. Residents are provided with life skills classes and mentors from the community. These programs empower residents to look at what their life might be once they have left the shelter for permanent housing.

Job Training, Referral, Education, Case Management
The JobTREC program seeks to decrease barriers to housing stability by providing case management services to eligible homeless individuals. Our clients are required to participate in a comprehensive intake process. Once the intake process is completed, our case managers work closely with each client to evaluate specific needs and to develop short- and long-term goals.

Homeless job seekers in Athens are also mothers and fathers; many are veterans; most are educated and desire to continue their educations. While JobTREC clients can come from different life experiences and although they face homelessness for a variety of reasons, they all have one thing in common: they want to work.

Population(s) Served

Going Home provides scaled support over the course of the program, with the clients gradually increasing their own level of responsibility until they are fully independent.

As always, our goal at the shelter is to look below the surface at root issues, working toward sustainable solutions. Going Home is a huge stride forward in this direction, and we need the community's support more than ever to continue supporting families as they strive for independence.

Providing financial literacy skills to the Athens community
This is our newest program at AAHS. Clients who are identified both in AAHS programs and through other community organizations receive intensive financial literacy training and one on one case management for ten weeks. These sessions provide clients with budgeting, bank accounts, credit checks, and smart spending skills.

This program will work to provide financial literacy skills to 30 clients or families in the Athens Clarke community annually.
