Key Services Provided
Housing ends homelessness. At Anawim, we move people directly from shelters and homeless camps into permanent housing. Once that critical need is met – mental health, addiction, medical care, and income can be addressed. Our Housing First model recognizes people need stable housing before pursuing a healthy, happy life.
