As part of our continued mission to decrease homelessness, Project ECHO operates a shared-living housing program. Our shared-living houses provide affordable, permanent solutions for formerly homeless individuals who are unable to secure or maintain housing on their own. Members receive case management through Project ECHO, but each individual is responsible for themselves, each pays his or her own portion of the shared household expenses, and each contributes to the decision making and well-being of the household.
Providing supportive housing for individuals in recovery is another way that Project ECHO works toward decreasing homelessness. Our recovery houses are charters of Oxford House International which puts them in a network of nearly two-thousand houses nationwide. Oxford Houses are always self-supporting and democratically run by their residents. As long as the individuals stay clean and sober, are not disruptive to the household, and continue to pay their portion of expenses, they may stay in the house as long as they like.
