Through Volunteers of America's Housing First and Rural Supportive Housing Programs, individuals and families receive assistance in obtaining safe, decent, affordable, and permanent housing. Secondly, individuals and/or families are linked with supportive services found in their communities. Volunteers of America helps the participants determine what housing and support services they need in order to increase the quality of their life. Support services are provided on-site and housing is permanent; therefore, participants will not have to move once they have become established. Participants work towards three goals throughout the program: maintain permanent housing, increase skills and/or income, and achieve greater self-determination. Once the participant is able to pay the rent on their own, they will graduate from the program by taking over the lease, which is the goal.
