Housing and Case Management
Milestone Place was established as a single room occupancy (SRO) residence facility for previously homeless single adults with low income.
Through Milestone Place, CFLS provides affordable temporary housing for 35 single adults, many of whom are veterans in need of intensive case management. In addition to intensive case management, Milestone residents receive substance abuse counseling, relapse prevention support, employment counseling and access to emergency services. Through these services, we prepare Milestone residents to live fuller lives of self-empowerment and long-term sustainability.
Residents share lounges, dining areas, kitchens and bathrooms. We provide 24- hour security surveillance with an electronic front door.
For additional information about the Milestone program, including eligibility requirements, contact Tyrese Cox at TCox@cflsdc.org or 202-635-1744.
Trinity Arms provides apartment-style housing to reentry women and survivors of domestic violence. Clients must either have custody of their children or be working toward getting custody. Throughout this three-year program, Trinity residents are paired with a case manager who provides intensive case management. Trinity clients have access to an array of supportive services including food and clothing, health and nutrition, life skills development, financial literacy and debt management, employment training and development, job placement, benefits assistance, therapy, and one-on-one parenting sessions.
Clients who are applying to Trinity Arms will be asked to provide supporting documentation related to the domestic violence they have experienced, such as a civil protection order or police report. For additional information, or to make a referral, please contact Ashlei Alexander at AAlexander@cflsdc.org.
Financial Literacy Housing
Our Financial Literacy Housing Program provides scattered-site housing to reentry women and survivors of domestic violence who are single or have children. For the first two months, we cover the full rent and utilities, and then each subsequent month over the course of a year, the client becomes more and more responsible for a portion of rent. With the help of a financial literacy coach, clients learn how to budget and create a savings account, and the goal is for them to have financial stability in order to permanently maintain their housing once they are exited from the program. Clients in this program also receive support from our therapist, the CFLS employment team, and other resources where needed.
Clients access this program through our internal referral process after working with our reentry or domestic violence case manager.
