Vision House provides transitional housing with supportive services in Renton and Shoreline, Washington to help families experiencing homelessness move from crisis, to stability and permanent housing. We also have a Diversion Center in Renton to assist families with their immediate needs to help keep them from entering the shelter system.
We provide critical resources to two kinds of families with children:
- A family experiencing homelessness that hopes to transition into permanent housing
- A family on the brink of homelessness
These services include housing, case management and guidance. They also incorporate classes and training that lead to transformation. Whether it’s vocational, life skills, parenting, or health and wellness, these classes are designed to address and remove the friction points that cause tension within a family as well as building resilience within the family.
But it’s more than that. By addressing these areas, individuals often uncover their God-given gifts and talents. They are supported in their pursuit of long-term stability, and encouraged to live with hope.
Housing and Supportive Services
Families experiencing homelessness need safe housing. There’s no way around that fact. Every individual on the planet deserves a roof over his or her head.
They also need the time and space to resolve the crises in their lives that led them to homelessness to begin with.
That’s why we offer families temporary housing and supportive services so they can work on the difficulties in their lives that have prevented them from achieving independence and self-sufficiency. And then they can move on successfully to permanent housing.
This isn’t a handout. This is a way for individuals and families to deal with the root causes of their homelessness. When you deal with the root, the problem goes away. For good.
