Artists Helping The Homeless

Program Summary:
BE THE CHANGE is the keystone program that AHH provides to help prevent substance abuse relapses among individuals experiencing homelessness as they are discharged from hospitals, residential services and other facilities. BTC’s holistic approach provides three primary tiers of service: 

1)Transportation for individuals to and from safety net service appointments, including medical, outpatient treatment, mental health services, etc. 

2) Discharge planning and execution for individuals leaving hospitals, detox facilities, treatment centers, incarceration, etc. These activities help individuals to identify and access the next step, bridging gaps. 

3) Residential options for both short-term and transitional housing. This tier of service focuses on young adults whose behavior alienates them from family and the very agencies that could help them.
