Mission: HOMELESSNESS - TO ADVANCE HOUSING AND HUMAN SERVICES TO THE HOMELESS AND TO EDUCATE THE COMMUNITY ON THE PLIGHT OF HOMLESSNESS IN THE AREA.
Target demographics: the homeless
Geographic areas served: the northern panhandle of West Virginia
Programs: case management, transitional housing, residential housing for individuals with disabilities and rapid rehousing assistance. We assist the homeless in Brooke, Hancock, Ohio, Marshall and Wetzel counties of West Virginia.
I have donated to the Greater Wheeling Coalition for the Homeless as well currently working there. I have come to know many of our clients and have heard their stories. The case managers do a terrific job of listening to the clients, asking questions to access what assistance the client qualifies to receive, and referring to other agencies for assistance. We have successful former clients who are in permanent housing still call and talk to their former case manager just to fill them in on their lives and tell them how much they appreciate the help they received from our agency.
