EMERGENCY SHELTER FOR INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILIES
The Neighborhood Center of West Volusia’s Emergency Shelter serves those in crisis and who are homeless. The Emergency Housing provides immediate overnight shelter for 10 individuals for up to 30 days. Additional services provided during an individual’s shelter stay include meals, counseling, job counseling, and a supportive drug/alcohol free environment. The Neighborhood Center housing program is a working program and collaborates with local agencies to assist individuals to find employment.

The Neighborhood Center provides Transitional Housing for single men and women for up to one year. Individuals typically stay in Emergency Housing for 30 days and “transition” into the next level of shelter. The Neighborhood Center houses 11 adult men and three adult women. Residents must seek employment and must remain drug- and alcohol-free. This is a fee-for-service program and individuals are required to meet with a caseworker once per week. The Transitional Housing environment promotes a therapeutic and supportive community for better success.
TRANSITIONAL HOUSING FOR SINGLE WOMEN WITH CHILDREN
The Lacey House provides emergency and transitional housing for women with children. Women with children are provided a safe, clean and positive environment to regain a stable place in their lives and in society. For these families, we also receive counseling and offer life skills groups.
PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE FAMILY HOUSING
The Neighborhood Center provides permanent supportive housing to families as well. Families are interviewed to determine needs and enter into the shelter for a period of time up to one year. Families are encouraged to address issues that will rebuild the solvency of the family unit. The Neighborhood Center’s families meet a caseworker weekly to establish and review goals to help ensure their success. Learn more about Heart House.
