Bridge Housing provides people who are experiencing homelessness temporary safe and stable housing while they are supported to secure long-term housing. People receive targeted services and share homes with others. Community House Sylmar provides a safe place to sleep for our neighbors at imminent risk of becoming homeless, or presently experiencing homelessness.
The Coordinated Entry System aligns the Adult, Family, and Youth Systems into a seamless, collaborative, county-wide platform for housing and service delivery to homeless households. Community House Sylmar uses this system.
The main objectives of the system are to:
Most homeless families and individuals need some level of case management and supportive services to secure and maintain permanent housing, though the specific need varies greatly, depending on the individual circumstances. The availability of appropriate case management and supportive services is key to enabling homeless families and individuals to take advantage of an available rental subsidy, increase their income, and access/utilize available public services and benefits. Our staff connects people to supportive services. We are not affiliated with any government agency, but work with all of them.
