More than just a place to live
According to Census statistics, Orange County’s population more than doubled between 1965 and 2009. Unfortunately the availability of affordable housing has decreased. RECAP’s Supportive Housing programs provide a variety of residences focusing on veterans, seniors, the disabled, and the homeless.
A case manager is matched with each family and meets regularly, in-office and in-home to help set goals to regain stability and self-sufficiency. Case managers support participants through
- Social service navigation
- Assistance with CPS/APS services
- Help replacing vital documents
- Finding clothes for a job interview
- Securing food
- Furthering their education, finding job training
- Updating resumes & interviewing
