The N.E.S.T. Program promotes independence and choice for individuals and families who are ready to move on from Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) programs. The N.E.S.T. program is designed for PSH participants who have demonstrated housing stability in their PSH unit and are no longer in need of intensive services.
Depending on funding, the N.E.S.T. program may be able to provide the following:
- Transitional costs such as rent subsidies
- Security deposit assistance
- Credit building repair
- Furniture assistance
- Career building financial assistance
- Budgeting skills training
- Educational/career opportunities
Participation in the N.E.S.T. Housing Program is voluntary and based on certain eligibility criteria designed to ensure long term stability and success. The goal is for the consumer to be financially independent from the N.E.S.T. program within two years.
