Supportive Housing

According to the US Census Bureau, Orange County’s population more than doubled between 1965 and 2009. Unfortunately, the availability of affordable housing has decreased. RECAP’s Supportive Housing programs target households that are potentially homeless, low-income, elderly, disabled, or in need of transitional housing.

Not just housing

The goal of all supportive housing and rental subsidy programs is to get participants back to self-sufficiency. RECAP case managers are an important part of the process. Participants meet regularly with their case manager, in-office and in-home, to discuss progress and goals. Unemployed and underemployed participants maintain structured daily activities including employment workshops, self and family care, and financial education. Case managers support participants through social service navigation, replacing vital documents, or finding clothes for a job interview. Participants are encouraged to further their education through formal education, obtaining a GED, or job training.
