FAQ: What does S4 stand for?

Shelter, Stability, Support, Success.  This is the program we have developed to guide guests from homelessness to independence. 

Once they are Sheltered, guests work with a case manager to create a plan designed to help them to regain financial Stability.  Case managers connect guests with the necessary service providers and supervise them during this process.

Once guests reach a certain level of financial security, as well as emotional, mental, and physical stability, they are invited to move into transitional housing (provided that there is an apartment available).  Rent is subsidized, and guests continue to receive rigorous case management (Support) for one to two years as they incrementally take over their expenses until they are fully self-sufficient (Success). 

Even after guests have “graduated” from the S4 program, for many TIS remains a part of their support network.
