Additional Support

At each of our communities, NAC offers on-site programs and activities with the purpose of helping residents improve health & wellness; increase financial literacy; and encourage family strengthening. Co-ordinated by our Resident Services Team, classes and activities are offered throughout the year and are tailored to meet the interests of each unique community. Households are encouraged to participate, not only for their own benefit, but to build a welcoming, supportive environment and sense of true community as well.

Activities include cooking demonstrations, financial management, job and career development, AA support groups, family communication strategies, and afterschool and summer programs for kids. The Resident Services Team also assists with the Resident Empowerment Program which offers residents the opportunity to become involved in building a safe, supportive environment at each community.

A "chronically homeless" individual is defined to mean a homeless individual with a disability who lives either in a place not meant for human habitation, a safe haven, or in an emergency shelter or in an institutional care facility if the individual has been living in the facility for fewer than ninety (90) days and had been living in a place not meant for human habitation, a safe haven or in an emergency shelter immediately before entering the institutional care facility. In order to meet the ‘‘chronically homeless’’ definition, the individual also must have been living as described above continuously for at least twelve (12) months or on at least four (4) separate occasions in the last three (3) years, where the combined occasions total a length of time of at least twelve (12) months. Each period separating the occasions must include at least seven (7) nights of living in a situation other than a place not meant for human habitation, in an emergency shelter or in a safe haven.

Federal nondiscrimination laws define a person with a disability to include any (1) individual with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; (2) individual with a record of such impairment; or (3) individual who is regarded as having such an impairment. In general, a physical or mental impairment includes, but is not limited to, examples of conditions such as orthopedic, visual, speech and hearing impairments, cerebral palsy, autism, epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), developmental disabilities, mental illness, drug addiction, and alcoholism.
