Salvation Army, Goodwill Partner on Housing Program

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAY 24, 2019

Five years ago, The Salvation Army implemented a programming framework called Quality of Life by Choice (QLIFE) to reduce homelessness and move people toward stable housing. The program moves homeless individuals through a continuum of care that includes short-term housing, case management, and long-term goal-setting. But when clients are finally placed into longer-term housing, furniture is not included and the individuals do not have significant funds for furnishings. The Salvation Army Sarasota and Goodwill Manasota have partnered in hopes that items Goodwill hadn't sold in retail stores could be donated to The Salvation Army clients rather than diverted to salvage operations. Rapidly Rehoused individuals are 12 times more likely to remained housed when they have furniture in their new home.
