We prefer referring agencies to be available for consultation prior to intake and welcome efforts during move-in to help facilitate a warm handoff and supported transition where possible. Please have staff members who are making referrals reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
● The Enhanced Shelter at The Oaks is a program focused on helping people move toward housing. People in the program should be ready and willing to fully engage and participate in a person-centered housing-first case plan with their assigned Case Manager. All participants will be assessed after 30 days for program continuation.
● The Enhanced Shelter at The Oaks is considered a low-barrier shelter
○ Residents do not need to be in possession of valid identification for admission into the shelter.
○ Residents do not need to be clean/sober provided that they:
■ aren’t a safety risk to themselves or others
■ are able to stand, walk, and get into and out of bed
■ aren’t in possession of, or actively using, intoxicating substances while on shelter property.
● Residents must be willing and able to meet multiple times per month with a case Manager, adhere to a case plan, and attend regular community meetings.
● Residents may, with prior approval, be allowed to bring pets with them. Pet policy and restrictions apply (dogs should be current with vaccinations please!).
● Residents must be capable of basic daily functions (eating, getting in and out of bed, using restroom and shower facilities) without assistance.
● We don't conduct background checks for shelter residents, and residents will not be prohibited from entry due to past convictions or pending cases, regardless of the charge. All residents have the right to access the shelter without discrimination due to race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, physical disability, and age.
● We welcome members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
