Housing for the Homeless



Housing Opportunities has several housing programs designed to help individuals and families who are ready to move from inhabitable conditions to safe housing. Our housing for the homeless programs provide affordable, safe apartments where individuals and families gain the personal and economic empowerment needed to break the cycle of homelessness.

Guests can come as often as they like for services, support, and resources to help break the cycle of homelessness. Services offered include case management, daily groups, shower and laundry facilities, kitchen and meals, as well as employment services.

This program gives the individual/family a chance to get off the streets and receive customized support services that address their needs. This program is open to current Porter County residents who qualify. The first step in applying for this program is to call or stop by the office to start the application process.   

      Permanent Housing Program –This program has units in Portage and Michigan City.  This program provides individuals/families an affordable permanent option while seeking assistance to improve their lives along with the training and skills necessary to succeed in the community.  Residents are offered classes that focus on budgeting and credit repair, case management, and employment services.  This program is open to current Porter and LaPorte County residents who are currently homeless and where the head of household has a diagnosed disability.  

With both temporary and permanent housing programs, a case manager will work with residents to enable their return to the community as self-reliant citizens.  These programs also offer job preparation skills and training, money management training, self-help programs, support groups, individualized support services and treatment programs as needed.
