The Lowell Transitional Living Center provides the most vulnerable adults in our community with programs and services that meet immediate needs for emergency shelter and food, along with case management and other help that enable those we serve to make the transition from a shelter bed to a permanent place to call home.
Our Case Management Program is the heart of our organization. With our clients, Intake Case Managers develop a plan that will lead to employment and housing.
Sometimes it is the little things that require the help of a case manager, such as obtaining a form of identification, or accessing health care. Other times the problems are long standing and difficult. Either way our dedicated team of case managers provide support, education, and guidance on the road to housing and self-sufficiency.
Case Managers promote overall stability, emphasizing physical and behavioral health and nutrition. When needed, our case managers work with those in need of drug/alcohol rehabilitation through relationships with local rehabilitation programs, as well as proving transportation.
Our approach matches what people experiencing homelessness want and seek our help to achieve, and it is particularly effective for people who have lost their homes due to a personal crisis.
- We provide intensive services for the chronically homeless.
- Many of our programs, including the Meals program, are open to the wider community.
- Clients can continue to access these programs after they move into new homes.
Housing First is a national model recognized for its success in assisting those who are homeless due to crisis achieve independence, saving the system considerable costs.
Our agency owns 12 single occupancy apartments, 55 below market Single Room Occupancy (SRO) units, and 6 units of housing for chronically homeless individuals.
Often times our devoted case managers help people move into new homes by renting moving vans, obtaining furniture, linens, and housewares, and helping them move. Many clients choose to continue their relationships with their case managers to ensure they remain housed and connected to LTLC services and support.
