STIL Accessing Our Services

Who Can Benefit from this Program?

Individuals and families experiencing homelessness.


Who Qualifies for this Service?

Applicants must be:

    Living with friends/family or in a hotel is not considered homeless under the HUD definitions. Applicants who are not homeless under this definition cannot be considered for the Shelter to Independent Living Program. Potential referrals who will be homeless within a week under the HUD definition or living in an institution category should seek a transition or emergency shelter to address immediate housing needs and then consult with their shelter case manager for a referral to the STIL program.

  3. Homeless Certification HUD Verification


How To Get Started

  • CHART will do further assessment for eligibility for the STIL program.
