Honesty Opportunity Perseverance Everyday
CHULA VISTA HOMELESS OUTREACH TEAM
This is a multi-disciplinary team led by the Chula Vista Police Department, in partnership with Community Through Hope. We engage the unsheltered in their current location and environment to establish a connection of trust, in order to motivate these individuals or families to access local support to regain their self-sufficiency.
HOUSING NAVIGATION & CASE MANAGEMENT
The C.V.H.O.T./C.T.H. partnership is currently supporting clients by connecting them to local options facilitated by multiple housing authorities who provide low income and traditional housing. The team works together to offer clients a plan for independence through linking the unsheltered to local resources such as nutrition, mental health services, drug and alcohol treatment, and emergency services.
C.V.H.O.T./McALISTER INSTITUTE READY TO WORK PROGRAM
Through this innovative program, unsheltered clients are currently working with the Parks and Recreation Department in beautifying the city of Chula Vista on specific projects. This endeavor is sponsored by the McAlister Institute.
DAY OF HOPE
Once a month, Community Through Hope holds a homeless outreach event we call DAY OF HOPE. Along with our partners, we provide showers, haircuts, nutrition, hygiene kits, books, clothing and occasionally dog food. A hot meal served under a canopy offers a place to rest and connect. The C.V.H.O.T. and P.E.R.T. provide support. Multiple agencies for housing, veterans affairs, mental health, and drug and alcohol programs are available. All of this, in an environment of acceptance, safety, and dignity. Day of Hope offers the opportunity for the community to interact and get to know the unsheltered population, and foster compassion and understanding. As funds and manpower allow, we hope to expand this outreach more often.
COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP VOUCHER PROGRAM
The voucher program allows current partners to refer clients who are in need of emergency services, such as nutrition, immediate shelter, clothing, bus passes and synergistic case management. Agencies wishing to provide their client base with these outside services can contact our office.
