HomeBase provides intensive case management for Clackamas County households who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Referrals to HomeBase come through Clackamas County’s Coordinated Housing Access line, and are funneled into two groups:
Families who are in need of finding new housing and do not have any housing options immediately available are offered rapid rehousing services through HomeBase. These families move into the Annie Ross House until they can move into permanent, stable housing.
Families who are in need of finding new housing but have a temporary housing option available, such as doubling up with family members, are offered diversion services through HomeBase. These families are supported throughout the duration of their temporary stay until they can move into permanent, stable housing.
Whether enrolled in rapid rehousing or diversion, all households in HomeBase work one-on-one with a case manager to identify barriers to housing, develop a work plan, and secure permanent housing. Case management continues for 3 months after each household has moved into permanent housing.
