Meeting this goal will allow the participants to secure an income to live as independently as possible; and To help participants achieve greater self-determination. The condition of homelessness itself can be damaging to one’s self-determination; achieving a greater sense of self-determination enables the participant to gain needed confidence to make the transition out of homelessness.
