Welcome House Programs

Welcome House of South County prides itself as being a program dedicated to helping to end homelessness and provide assistance to those in need. It is more than just a place to lay your head. Through our program, our guests are able to gain the skills and opportunities to become self sufficient and thrive independently.

Shelter

Our main building, located at 8 North Road, is a 17 bed emergency shelter for single adult males and females.

Supportive Housing

In addition to the emergency shelter, Welcome House owns 5 properties of supportive housing. This includes 7 supported permanent housing units for families, 6 support permanent housing units for individuals, and 2 units of transitional housing for individuals "graduating" out of the shelter program. Welcome House currently houses a total of 43 persons within our housing units.

Soup Kitchen

The soup kitchen provides 3 meals a day to guests of the emergency shelter, and opens for the community to come in for lunch Monday through Friday from 12-1pm.

Transitional Housing

Welcome House of South County has a transitional housing program designated for individuals who complete the emergency shelter program. The program is a one year program.

The main goal of the transitional housing program is to provide supportive services in order for a client to obtain permenant housing and self-sufficiency.

We have two transitional housing units for individual males and females. The units are shared coed living. Each person pays a reduced fee for rent based on their income and and is required to meet with a case manager weekly. These meetings help us to assist each person with their personal goals and give us the opportunity to assess each person on an individual basis.
