Supportive Housing

Supportive Housing

Permanent Supportive Housing is housing that chronically homeless men and women never have to leave. Of course, as they stabilize and learn to better manage their disabilities, they may choose to move off campus to other affordable housing. Living at First Fruit Ministries offers continual support and shared living with chances to volunteer, be part of a strong community, have help nearby if in crisis, and enjoy community with our on-campus residents.

Rapid Re-Housing quickly connects homeless families with short-term rental assistance.

5.11 House provides safe, stable housing and holistic support for victims of human trafficking (as defined by TVPA) in Wilmington, NC and the surrounding areas. 5.11 House is made up of 8 on-campus bedrooms for single women and 2 scattered-site locations for families, men, or participants in active addiction.

During a victim’s recovery, 5.11 House provides:

  • Case management
  • Stable, secure housing
  • Recovery services (harm reduction or recovery)
  • Primary medical care
  • Behavioral health services
  • Housing navigation and first month’s rent upon completion of the program
