Coming Home provides case management to those experiencing homelessness and entering the system through the 211 Homeless Hotline. We provide temporary, emergency motel placement when no other shelter is available, and assist clients who can be diverted from the shelter system in establishing themselves in permanent housing, through the provision of 1 ½ months’ rent.
Coming Home partners with New Brunswick hospitals to address the health related social needs of their high ER utilizing patients in need. The navigators of this SHI Program reach out to these patients and work to address identified needs of food insecurity, housing instability and breakdown of social support networks. The dual goals of the SHI program are reducing homelessness and unnecessary and inefficient health care costs, with the most vulnerable County residents being the beneficiaries of stable housing and improved health outcomes.
