Ending homelessness by connecting individuals and families to resources that promote self-sufficiency and prevent future homeless episodes.
Homeless Connections, established in 1981, has adapted to meet the needs of people both homeless and at-risk of homelessness in the Fox Valley community.
The mission of the organization expanded in 2002 when a Prevention Program was added to help individuals and families at imminent risk of homelessness remain in their community housing. The Prevention Program was combined with LEAVEN’s program in 2008.
A Street Outreach Program was added in 2005 to meet the growing needs of those with chronic mental illnesses and substance abuse disorders residing in areas unfit for human habitation in the community.
