Transitional Storage Program

Transitional Storage Program Can Help the Homeless Get Back on Their Feet!

Belongings Getting Lost, Stolen, or Thrown Away is a Real Threat for the Homeless.
For the homeless, the dangers of belongings being lost, stolen, or thrown away is real and can be paralyzing. Simply being able to store belongings can be freeing, both physically and emotionally.  The ability to store belongings helps the homeless to focus on the things that can bring stability and real change to their lives.  Instead of trying to carry belongings with them or spend every day protecting those things.
Storage bins or units allow the homeless to safely store sentimental items and keepsakes, important documents, like identification and paperwork that can be complicated and expensive to replace.  The Transitional Storage Program can also ease some of the problems that lead residents and businesses to complain about the presence of homeless people in their communities. The ability to store ones’ important possessions frees people up during the day to pursue job interviews, medical check-ups, and housing appointments instead of protecting their things around the clock.
According to several cities that offer Transitional Storage programs have reported that “…users tend to check in sleeping equipment during the morning—things like blankets, sleeping bags, and pillows—and check them out again at night.” San Diego’s Transitional Storage Center provides more than 350 bins for homeless residents to stash their things.  Each bin holds up to 96 gallons.  People assigned a bin can check into their possessions during morning and evening windows—before and after work.  Two full-time employees mind the facility.
Vancouver agreed to launch a like-minded storage program in 2010 run by First United Church, where it is located.  The church, which also operates a 60-bed homeless shelter, converted part of its underground parking into a center where homeless residents can check in shopping carts, store luggage, or make use of large Rubbermaid containers that can hold up to 50 pounds of stuff each.

HELPS Resource Center wants to help offer some relief for the homeless by offering transitional storage to all whom need it.  Please help us make this a reality in the community by donating now.
