WHAT IS HOUSING FIRST?
Housing First is a community-wide coordinated entry system that aims to connect individuals and families who are homeless—or those who are immediately at risk of becoming homeless—to housing and other necessary resources.
The goal is to rapidly respond to people experiencing homelessness by working together as a community to coordinate housing and service options to ensure homelessness remains rare, brief and non-recurring in the Greater Helena Area.
Housing First will assist with housing individuals and families experiencing homelessness as soon as possible after accessing the Greater Helena Area Housing First system.
