EMERGENCY MEN'S SHELTER PROGRAM
As the only shelter for men in all of Westmoreland County, the Union Mission recognizes the significant role it plays as both an intermediary in time of crises and as a solution for men who find themselves without shelter. Our main goal is to help our men transition through this difficult period of time while maintaining the dignity and respect they deserve.
PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING PROGRAM
Within our community and the men we serve there are pervasive issues which impact s person's ability to maintain stable housing and self-sufficiency. Left unaddressed these issues lend themselves to chronic homelessness. In an effort to meet these unique needs, the Union Mission operates a Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) program consisting of 6 apartments. This stable, supportive housing environment not only allows the time necessary for our clients to seek the treatment and assistance needed but also affords them an opportunity to hone their new skills, coping strategies, and self-management techniques. While there is no limit on residency length in this program, we coordinate with the tenants to establish a time-line for accomplishment of goals, personal growth, and, when appropriate, transition to traditional housing environments.
