The KHAKO service delivery strategies are based on nationally and locally recognized continuum-of-care models demonstrated to be effective in addressing the complex issues associated with homelessness in a comprehensive, holistic manner. This approach goes beyond the provision of basic shelter and sustenance needs for homeless persons, by providing a series of structured programs and services that are focused on instilling the skills, knowledge and experience that are necessary to support self-sufficiency and promote positive, healthy life choices.
These services include the following:
