In the Fall of 2021, in response to the public health and humanitarian crisis unfolding near the intersection of Massachusetts Ave. and Melnea Cass Blvd., Victory Programs opened units of low-threshold permanent housing and units of low-threshold transitional housing for people coming directly off the streets, those struggling with substance use and/or risk for overdose, and who are at high risk for HIV acquisition or are living with HIV/AIDS.
Our low-threshold programs provide stays from three months to unlimited with an array of services tailored to the populations served by each and which include:
- Supportive case management
- Assistance with housing retention skills, setting goals, developing long-term plans
- Referrals to community services, medical and detoxification providers, and employment resources
These new programs illustrate Victory Programs’ core belief that no person who is struggling should be asked to do the hardest thing first (whether that’s stopping substance use, addressing mental health issues, or finding permanent housing and a job), on their own, before they are offered the fundamental support they truly need.
