SCLAHP is a transitional supportive housing program targeting homeless families and individuals in Salem County. This HUD funded program allows homeless families more time to acquire the skills needed to obtain and maintain employment, housing, and other positive elements that will sustain them in their community.
Inter Agency Council administers the program. They are part of a consortium of four (4) provider agencies who offer services, case management and maintain leases to properties where clients reside.
Eligible individuals and families in Salem County must have been homeless and a resident of the county for at least six months. Title 20 income guidelines are used to determine eligibility.
Homeless clients and families will be maintained in transitional housing for a period of up to two years. Once they have moved to permanent housing or have taken over the lease for their present housing, six months of follow-up services will be provided. These services will constitute at least monthly follow-up visits to gauge the continual progress of the client and family. After that, follow-up will be conducted annually for monitoring of success for statistical purposes.
