In mid-2019 we realized that it is far more effective to bring services to where the homeless are than to expect them to navigate all the various social service agencies on their own. We moved the Exit Homelessness program to the Sleep Center and expanded onsite services.
Since then, we have had substantial success in helping our clients move to more stable situations. In 2020, Exit Homelessness helped house 31 people and helped ten reconnect with families and seven connect with friends.

THE EXIT HOMELESSNESS PROGRAM
In January 2018, the Walla Walla Alliance for the Homeless, with support from the City of Walla Walla, began a pilot program called “Exit Homelessness.”
The Exit Homelessness Program supports the Alliance mission by providing participants with tools and support for reaching their housing, health and self-sufficiency goals.
Jim came to Exit Homelessness fresh out of jail. He’d heard from another Exit participant also staying at the Christian Aid Center that Exit could help him with structuring his time and with a letter of recommendation for responsible participation. After working with us for a month Jim left us for Walla Walla Community College full time, to work part time, and more recently had to give up his litter route because of his other obligations. Jim says the Exit Homelessness program gave him, among other things, a way to give back to the community and gain self-worth with his litter route. He has been elected president at his transitional housing unit and we’re confident Jim won’t let anything get in the way of his success at a career in the environmental field.
