Compass Affordable Housing staff work to help single parents, mostly women, obtain affordable, appropriate housing and reunify with their children. Services support the reunification of these families. CAH collaborates with several local and governmental agencies and provides housing search and support services and referrals to women and single parents’ transitioning out of homelessness. Each household meets with CAH staff weekly and in one-on-one sessions until housing is secured. CAH then provides follow-up and ongoing services for the family.
