Eviction Prevention & housing Stabilization

Many clients exiting the shelter system require intensive supports to stabilize into housing and not fall back into the shelter system. To support clients to transition into their new units, stabilize into housing, and integrate into the community, Homes First implements Critical Time Intervention (CTI).  

CTI is an Evidence Based Practice (EBP) intervention created in the mid 1980’s in New York by Columbia University and the psychiatric unit at Presbyterian Hospital.  The intervention is designed to support clients for a year post-shelter to break the cycle of homelessness. 

See below for how we implement CTI into our Follow-Up Worker Program:
