There is a national effort to end chronic homelessness by 2017 and SEARCH has positioned itself to be a local leader in this movement. Following this charge, SEARCH conducted a thorough self study to determine where we can have the most impact in our community. As a result, SEARCH has streamlined its programs to focus on our strengths and creating more lasting outcomes for those we serve. SEARCH's focus, facilitating behavior change that assists people live self-sufficient, more healthful lives is what we do best. We will focus on helping three distinct population groups change their behavior and ultimately exit homelessness: chronically homeless, readily employable, and young children. While not always the easiest job, at SEARCH we are committed to this work.
