The Irving Street Women’s Residence is a residential and support program designed to serve chronically homeless women (homeless for one continuous year or four (4) times in three (3) years) who are disabled or experience mental health issues.
The facility houses 25 women in 15 sleeping rooms and there is no maximum length of stay. The program includes a home-like environment where the women can live without the fear of having to return to the streets within a specific amount of time. The women are empowered to care for themselves by maintaining their living space in a healthy and sanitary manner, as well as participating in food preparation, planning their daily activities and providing support to one another in the community living environment. The facility is staffed 24/7 with a Project Manager, Residential Coordinators, Case Managers and a Part-Time Mental Health Worker/Consultant.
Residents are drawn exclusively through the One Home
