ReEntry Program 

The EOC works directly with the Warren County Prison Authority to provide transitional housing for individuals exiting the County Prison system who would otherwise be homeless. Individuals can stay for up to 6 months while working with a Housing Specialist, Probation, and any additional support service staff. The goal is to increase the likelihood of a positive re-entry to the community.

Permanent Supportive Housing for Chronically Homeless

This program includes 8 furnished apartment units available for chronically homeless individuals and families with disabilities or a mental health diagnosis. Once housed, a Housing Specialist works intensively with households to identify and address barriers that have made long term housing difficult in the past. These may include a need for additional service providers, obtaining stable employment, and learning valuable life skills.
