This program provides U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 8 rental assistance for permanent residents. Under HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher Program, Safe Harbour receives funds over a 10-year period to subsidize rents for homeless individuals who live in single-room housing.
Permanent residents work with a client services specialist who continues providing supportive services to increase their emotional and physical stability. By continuing to provide education and counseling opportunities, the focus remains on directing residents’ lives in a manner that will help them live proactively, instead of “crisis-to-crisis.”
Safe Harbour offers permanent housing at three facilities in Cumberland County. In downtown Carlisle, 14 single rooms are available in the James Wilson facility. The Wilson House offers five apartments for individuals, couples and families. Another five apartments for individuals and couples are located at Harbour Place on West Street in Carlisle.
