S.A.F.E. is a stabilization program with a specialization in street outreach services and connection to homeless housing services. Through collaboration with our community partners, clients who have been through our case management programs have moved on to permanent housing, gainful employment, improved relations with families and communities, and reduced incidences of reliance on emergency services. Our agency has covered the homeless service needs in Dallas County with a focus on the areas of Oak Cliff and Mesquite. Our overall goal is to provide individual and family stability through the elimination of homelessness and provision of housing and income generating tools. Through our services, our agency has contributed to the reduction in homelessness, reduction of mental health crises, reduction in reports of domestic disturbances, and positive reunification's with family.
All of our projects & program include the following services: Outreach Case Management Transportation Group/Individual Therapy Continuum of Care Housing Navigation
To Accomplish Peace
Helen's Project's newly named Peace Project focuses on assisting clients who have had or are currently experiencing challenges with mental health and substance abuse. The staff's non-judgmental approach allows our clients to come in and find their peace. When we engage with our client in various environments, we have a conversation to identify some of the biggest challenges they are currently facing, we identify SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time) based goals with the client and develop a plan of execution that will allow them to find their peace and stability.
Helen's Project's H.O.P.E (Hold On Pain Ends) program is a crisis response for individuals experiencing domestic violence and human trafficking who are seeking an escape to safety and begin the journey to stability. H.O.P.E. empowers people of all ages, race, and their children who have experienced domestic violence, stalking, human trafficking, or sexual exploitation. Survivors of domestic and sexual violence often face a wide variety of challenges; the program services strive to encourage independence through community engagement and advocacy. The purpose is to educate and end human trafficking and family violence. Women and children in our H.O.P.E. program are provided with support and access to emergency transportation, case management, advocacy, education, legal advocacy, and housing assistance.
The Change Project is a holistic approach to dealing with the effects of crime and drug use in our community. Through ex-offender programs, reentry work programs, and criminal justice reform advocacy we provide the necessary resources to communities that suffer from high crime rates and incarceration. The Change Project also works towards decreasing the high rates of drug abuse in vulnerable populations that could lead an individual into homelessness.
