Services

Housing

The LDRC Housing Transition Program assists clients in locating affordable housing, provides financial assistance with move-in cost and offers follow-up services for homeless clients transitioning into housing.  All potential clients attend a Housing Readiness Class prior to placement. The services offered by our follow-up program include: regular monthly follow-up by a case manager, household items assistance, emergency food box referrals, referrals to community agencies for additional social service supports,  mediating with landlords,  eviction prevention, provision of  basic life skills classes, publication of a client newsletter, and organizing social events to enable clients to develop additional community supports.  Currently, over 75% of those who go through our program are still in their housing after one year.  Our funding allows us to find placement for approximately 200 individuals per year.

Post Office

The LDRC Post  Office is the only Post Office in the U.S. designated for people experiencing homelessness. Having an actual address (rather than for “General Delivery”) is a significant and often crucial benefit in helping our clients to obtain employment and get into housing. 5,262 clients received their mail at the post office last year. In addition we provide fax & copying services.  Our volunteers write cards and letters to ensure everyone will receive mail for those who do not have contact with family or friends .

Bag ‘N Tag

Bag ‘N Tag provides clients a daily and weekly place to store their personal property while actively working to end their homelessness.  Lockers are available for rent also.

Legal Services

The Phoenix School of Law has partnered with Lodestar to provide clients direct access to legal counseling.
