Programs: Guided Assistance to Permanent Placement Housing Program (GAPP): Offers low-income and homeless families with children (one adult must be working full-time) move-in costs to permanent housing and mandatory, comprehensive case management lasting up to two years; including family advisors, tutors for children, childcare cost subsidies, personal and job counseling, referrals, budgeting skills, etc. All applicants must fill out an application and be interviewed for the program.  A credit report is run on the applicant which reveals far more than the credit score -- it also reveals a great deal about the client's history and what the case manager must work on with the client to clean up the wreakage of their past and whether they have been truthful about the past.  Honesty over the next two years will be very important.  Cleaning up that credit, improving the credit score, learning to budget and increasing job skills are critical to self-sufficiency.  SPIN provides individualized case plans, support services to address and enhance the case plan and to ensure the client is able to maintain his/her own housing and living costs at the end of the program.   

Mission:
SPIN''s mission is "To guide Orange County''s homeless and working poor to permanent housing, substance abuse recovery and self-sufficiency". 
Results:
SPIN has had more than 13,000 volunteer hours donated to the organization in 2009 and assisted more than 5,400 individuals in 2009 to date.

As Human Services majors, we are required to complete three internships at different sites; SPIN is the third site I've been with and definitely my favorite.
