In 2009, a group of Clark County citizens, in response to the growing numbers of homeless and precariously housed families in the area, formed a coalition dedicated to providing a shelter and life renewal programs for those individuals who find themselves in desperate circumstances. With representatives from churches, city and county government, the schools, and numerous agencies, the CCHC was started. Our roots are deeply grounded in the dedication to our mission and improving the lives of individuals and families, and thereby our community. Wainscott Hall currently serves 60 homeless men,women, and children each year. 80% of our former residents have achieved and are maintaining permanent housing. Our goal is to continue to provide top quality services to our clients, continue to expand those services, and become a state-wide example of excellence in homeless services.
CCHC's primary program has been Wainscott Hall Transitional Housing Program. Through this program we serve 55-60 homeless men, women and families each year with more than 80% going on to stable housing. We offer free classes in money management, computer, life skills, psycho-educational classes, assistance with disability filing, medical,dental, and mental health access, transportation assistance, resume writing, job coaching, gardening, healthy eating, food, clothing and much more. The economic benefit to the community of this program is over $970,400 annually.
