In this program single mothers reside in our shelter along with their young children while receiving intensive case management services. Program participants take steps toward educational and vocational goals, get connected with community resources, receive mental health counseling, pay graduated rent and prepare for self-sufficiency.
The Affordable Supportive Housing Program is one of three types of housing that St. Elizabeth offers on our campus in New Albany. Since 1989 we have been providing shelter and support to pregnant women. We then expanded the program in 1996 when we built a brand new Transitional Shelter for single mothers and their children. Then in 2012 we opened our first Affordable Supportive Housing (ASH) unit. Today we have 9 of these units on our campus for families facing homelessness.
