Yakima Neighborhood Health Services (YNHS) will open a new resource and service center to help the chronically homeless in Yakima. The Rhonda D. Hauff Resource Center will focus on providing transitional housing and resources to help individuals and families get back on their feet. The center is named after YNHS deputy CEO Rhonda Hauff, who served as former chairwoman of the Homeless Network of Yakima County.
The center will feature housing for up to 40 people. Residents will sign a tenant agreement and pay 30 percent of their income towards rent. They will be assigned a case manager who will help them get services such as mental health, substance abuse and job placement counseling, all in one place.
Working to end homelessness is one of the many missions of YNHS. The opening of this center represents a need in the community and YNHS’ commitment to fulfilling their mission. Providing support for the homeless and giving them access to whole person care, the Rhonda D. Hauff Resource Center will open its doors in early March.
Having secure, stable housing leads to better health. Learn more about YNHS at www.ynhs.org.
