How We Measure Success
During our 2017-2018 fiscal year (July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018) NWPP’s Senior Housing Program provided housing services to 1,108 households needing a variety of assistance other than transportation. Of those:
- We placed 241 households in permanent housing.
- We provided eviction prevention services to 357 households.
We believe that long-term housing stability is the best measure of our success at ending or preventing homelessness for seniors. We measure our clients’ success in their housing at three regular intervals: 3 months, 6 months and 12 months after placement or eviction prevention services. In 2017/2018, 88 % remained stably housing after 12 months.
Housing stability can be affected by decreased income, loss of unemployment benefits and increased rents. Some of the individuals housed moved out of the area to seek employment.
