The Road Home's innovative housing programs have an 87% success rate.
The Road Home serves as the Central Housing Agency in a Salt Lake County wide, Continuum of Care Coordinated Access structure. The Road Home delivers housing services to approximately 1,500 households each year using Progressive Engagement and Permanent Supportive Housing models. Progressive Engagement is the practice of Rapidly Rehousing households despite barriers, with minimal financial and support resources. Households are progressively engaged with more intensive financial and supportive services resources. This model allows households to maintain self determination and receive the amount of support that helps end their homelessness, reserving rarer and more expensive programs for households who need that level of support. Permanent Supportive Housing is reserved for the most vulnerable households. The Road Home adheres to a Housing First framework, which prioritizes helping people experiencing homelessness locate and move in to housing, then providing individualized and voluntary supportive services as needed. This approach emphasizes participant choice in both housing selection and in service participation.
Helping families move out of shelter and into housing is part of The Road Home's Housing First philosophy.
Palmer Court is one example of how The Road Home provides permanent supportive housing to families and individuals who need comprehensive services to overcome homelessness.
