About Housing Opportunities for WomenHousing Opportunities for Women empowers individuals and families to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. HOW provides access to stable and affordable housing through the creation and maintenance of housing units for households who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. HOW marries the Housing First model—which recognizes housing as the foremost factor in improving client’s quality of life—with supportive case management and services to most effectively deter against sustained homelessness and housing insecurity. Clients who are accepted into HOW’s program begin working with a dedicated case manager to assess barriers and challenges including physical or mental illness, substance use, or underemployment. Case managers focus on stabilizing wellness and health, skill development and education, and income and employment training. They also provide linkages to benefits applications, HOW’s Youth, Employment or Health teams, and external supports.
