OHL’s Housing Programs focus on moving individuals to stable, secure housing, and keeping these individuals housed and engaged in case management. Funding and referrals for our housing programs are provided through our partnership with UNITY of Greater New Orleans. OHL provides homed individuals with case management, a process in which the OHL case manager and client work collaboratively to assess, plan, implement, coordinate, and monitor the services required to meet the client's health and human service needs. All program participants are required to contribute a portion of their rent. This is based on the individual client’s income level. OHL operates housing programs for the chronically homeless, as well as homeless individuals who have special needs such as mental, physical, or developmental disabilities, substance abuse issues, or HIV/AIDS. It is our goal to successfully house individuals as quickly as possible and begin engaging them in services.
