In response to the public health and humanitarian crisis unfolding near the intersection of Massachusetts Ave. and Melnea Cass Blvd., Victory Programs has opened low-threshold permanent and transitional housing designed to meet the complex needs of individuals experiencing homelessness.
Our low-threshold programs provide stays for an unlimited timespan; however, the goal of our transitional housing program is to get people into permanent housing in 3 to 9 months. Both programs are staffed 24/7 all year round and provide an array of services tailored to the populations served 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
Jones, Woodrow, and Blue Hill: Permanent housing for individuals with histories of homelessness, struggling with substance use disorder, chronic health conditions, and/or mental health concerns.
Envision: Transitional housing for individuals coming directly from the streets at Mass. and Cass, struggling with substance use and/or risk for overdose, and who are at high risk for HIV acquisition or are living with HIV/AIDS.
The Willows: Transitional housing for women* coming directly from the streets at Mass. and Cass. Many are actively using drugs, have medical and mental health conditions, struggle with complex trauma and daily re-traumatization, and many are victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking.
