Our Impact


SOME’s hallmark continuum of care serves to alleviate suffering and foster self-sufficiency among the people we serve. The programs in our continuum are organized into three levels: emergency programs that meet acute needs; rebuilding programs that address the underlying causes of homelessness and poverty; and stability programs that facilitate the maintenance of health, sobriety and income gained through the first two levels of programs. Clients may access several programs simultaneously and/or transition through services along a continuum. Our 2016 Impact>
