Being Homeless is a Problem with a Solution

Comeback Centers Helping to End Homelessness

The Comeback Stronger Center

Here we have a resource center for anyone needing information, direction, or personal assistance. But more than that, it’s where the entire mission began. By meeting those in need out on the street.

We are the first line of assistance to eventual permanent housing and in order to achieve this, we provide guidance and systems that give people the tools and hope they need in order to make these big changes in their lives.

The Comeback Center spent time developing a system that sees stunning success.

70% of the people seeking assistance here remain in permanent housing.

And are never homelessness again.

How We Help

The key is following each individual through each step of our system. Giving them resources when they need them, and helping them stay on the right path, eventually enabling our less fortunate neighbors to return to dignity and begin to contribute to society again.

Our primary focus is on episodically homeless that are unable to generate enough income to afford safe, long-term housing.

Through donations and partnerships, we provide rapid housing; the first step back to permanent housing.

A Focus on Dignity

Dining with Dignity is our ground-floor interaction with our clientele. Each Tuesday we provide a hot, hearty, well-cooked meal. Our front-line employees and volunteers warmly and courteously treat those in need with the respect that they are unlikely to find elsewhere in their lives.

Step 1

Every Tuesday, we provide a safe and welcoming environment where anyone who needs a little help can come be served with warmth and care. Dining with Dignity is the initial touchpoint to create relationships and trust that set the foundation for everything that follows.

Step 2

Through coordinated efforts that connect participants in the program with caring professionals. We educate participants on how to achieve success from the program and provide support for the unique needs of those experiencing homelessness. At this point, we introduce them to Rapid Housing.

Step 3

During their time in Rapid Housing, we provide hands-on assistance as we walk these people in transition through the services they require and provide essentials to meet their everyday needs.

Step 4

We go beyond Rapid Housing to provide assistance assisting with the legal, monetary, and health challenges that many homeless people face. We provide a clear path to homefulness giving them the confidence and tools to succeed.
