Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team Overview
Programs: We provide a safe environment for shelter and food for those who have found themselves in a homeless situation. With collaboration with other agencies, we also provide medical help and counseling for mental health and/or substance abuse. The client registers with our office where we provide an assessment, referrals, drug and alcohol testing, and means for transportation to the hosting church. They will stay there for 30 days or can be nominated to our 90-day intensive case management program, called Choose A Path (CAP) where they are given goals to reach each week, participate in a mandatory savings plan, support groups as needed, weekly meetings and drug tests. This program has a 32% success rate for obtaining a place to live when leaving the program. Clients are provided for all their basic needs so their efforts can be concentrated on working and finding a home again. We are building a new facility for the severely mentally ill homeless men, drop-in center for homeless,job training, case management and access in one building for services from macomb county agencies.
