Partnering with homeless individuals and families to build independent, successful lives.

With funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), JFS provides permanent supportive housing to formerly homeless men and women living with disabilities.

Our goal is to empower residents to secure permanent housing and overcome financial and functional barriers to thriving in mainstream society. Staff members conduct extensive outreach and provide intensive case management and supportive services to help program participants reach their goals.

“Libby entered Desert Vista after a long battle with addiction and chronic homeless. With long-term support from her JFS case manager and mental health specialist, Libby decided it was time for the next step. She enrolled into the local technical college for Medical Assisting and graduated with honors just over a month ago. Libby is now working fulltime job at a local urgent care, has rekindled her relationship with her daughter, and is planning on moving into her own apartment in Palm Springs. We are so excited for Libby and are blessed to have been given the privilege to walk with her on her journey for the last four years.”
