BSS+ Client Success Story:
Travis and his three children came to The Salvation Army from out of town. Through his work with the shelter case manager it was discovered the household had a housing voucher. The case manager connected Travis to longer term services through the Passages program.
The Passages Case Manager determined that with minimal intervention BSS Plus funds could be used to assist the family with moving into housing. The case manager worked with the client to identify goals, start budgeting, and oriented the client to Austin services. Through case management the client had the housing voucher transferred to Austin and implemented, found employment and gained greater stability.
Through continued efforts of the client and case management, the family has been stably housed for more than 6 months. The client is still employed and has been connected with other community resources to assure continued stability.
Using BSS Plus assistance the family had assistance with move-in fees, household goods and case management. The client continued with case management for a period of six months after moving into housing, which allowed the client to feel better situated and more stable.
