WOMEN AND MOTHERS PROGRAM
Parrott Creek and True Housing (formerly the Inn Home) developed the Women and Mother’s Collaboration to address the unmet needs of young women, particularly mothers under the age of 25, who face significant barriers to affordable and stable housing, safe parenting, substance misuse treatment and long term economic self-sufficiency. Together we wanted to improve outcomes for these young women and protect their children from additional Adverse Childhood Experiences.
The program provides a continuum of care that combines STAR outreach support with transition into safe and stable housing. Parrott Creek’s STAR program engages parents in treatment services and helps them access preventative healthcare support (click here for more about STAR). This collaboration brings True Housing’s transitional living housing under the management and coordination of Parrott Creek, providing STAR clients access to 25 housing units and integrating a continuum of care that addresses their houselessness and life-skills development.
The goal of the collaboration is to provide integrated case planning and systems alignment for Child Welfare families: from crisis intervention, to treatment, housing and long term life-skills support.
