Everyone’s situation is different, so Serenity House offers different housing programs! The locations below are properties belonging to Serenity House, but these are not the only housing opportunities available. Serenity House works with local landlords and housing agencies in order to provide clients with access to a wide range of housing options.
Evergreen Family Village
Evergreen Family Village (EFV) is a home program through HUD offering Permanent Supportive Housing for families. This site houses up to 12 families at one time in 2-3 bedroom units. Families are welcome to remain at EFV either by subsidy or by their own income as long as they remain under 50% area median income (ami). There must be a dependent minor living in the home for families to remain eligible for the program.
The purpose of Evergreen Family Village is to give these families the support they need to focus on managing the barriers (financial, physical, emotional and/or psychological) that may prevent them from obtaining stable housing elsewhere. It is also to provide the children of these families with a stable home environment so that they may focus on their education and building healthy relationships within the community.
Case management is at the core of many Serenity House programs, and a case manager is available to those families at EFV on subsidy. This case management included individualized goal planning, advocacy, short-term counseling, basic life skills training, referral to community resources, job-seeking and job-maintenance skills training, parenting skills, and much more.
Permanent Supportive housing
Serenity House oversees the daily operations of three permanent supportive housing programs: Sunbelt, Maloney Heights, and Tempest. These programs are scattered throughout Port Angeles and Sequim. They serve chronically homeless households without children in which one member has a documented disability. On-site case management connects clients to service providers within the community that can help these clients find support, stability, and assistance with day-to-day living.
Openings are filled through Coordinated Entry and the Housing Resource Center as these programs each have specific measurements for determining client eligibility. If you are in need of housing, please contact the Housing Resource Center intake line at: (360)565-5041
You can also visit the Housing Resource Center at 2203 W 18th Street, Port Angeles, Washington.
Only clients who are actively engaged with the housing resource center are considered for these program openings. Other service providers can refer clients to housing programs through the housing resource center. Please contact us at the number above for more information.
