Capital Area Alliance's One Stop
Event:On November 20th, the Capital Area Alliance’s One Stop will be celebrating its second anniversary. CAAH – a coalition of 35 service providers – was incorporated in 1996 to coordinate a collaborative effort in addressing homelessness and to serve as HUD’s Continuum of Care for the region. CAAH members provide Emergency Shelter, Transitional Housing, and Permanent Supportive Housing for chronically homeless individuals, persons with a range of disabilities, and families experiencing homelessness for the first time. Members also offer services including outreach to the homeless, behavioral health referrals, substance abuse treatment, veterans services, life skills training, job training/placement, youth shelters, and literacy/GED classes.

CAAH, in conjunction with Gulf Coast Housing Partnership and St. Vincent DePaul, secured land and funding (over $8,000,000) to build and operate a One Stop Homeless Services Center, an effort to collaborate more effectively between agencies and to ease access for homeless persons into the Continuum of Care’s services. In addition to the construction and operating dollars, the project has in kind donations by service providers to pay for the existing services. The One Stop Homeless Services Center brings under one roof a number of current and new Alliance programs including:

  • Day Center services for (e.g. shower, laundry, telephone, mail, etc.)
  • Primary Medical Care
  • Behavioral Health (Addiction and Mental Health Services)
  • Legal Services
  • Mainstream Resources Enrollment
  • Vocational Rehabilitation/Employment assistance
  • Housing First/Rapid Re-housing Services
  • Housing Location Services in the Private Sector and Homeless Housing Programs
