OUR PROPERTIES

ROBB’S HOUSE: Our transitional group home in downtown Rock Island. Residents may reside here for up to 24 months. Residents have their own private bedroom areas but share the common portions of the house, including kitchen, living and dining rooms, laundry room and bathrooms. The house has 5 individual bedrooms. Individuals interested in this housing must complete a full intake assessment with DeLaCerda House staff. Individuals housed here will participate in intensive case management while housed at Robb’s House and encouraged to work toward concrete, attainable goals that address the barriers that have led to their homelessness – often including mental health services, drug treatment, employment, health care and linkage with appropriate social services. Monthly program fees for living at Robb’s House are $150. We will work with potential clients to find them resources within the community that will pay for these fees until they are unable to do so independently. We operate under “Housing First” principles, meaning we seek to first house individuals and then work on tackling the other issues with which they are struggling. We offer compassionate, non-judgmental and confidential case management, and we operate with the guideline that our clients use their time at Robb’s House to transition themselves into a more stable, safe and healthy life. In compliance with our funding from HUD, the following criteria are essential for eligibility at Robb’s House: proof of HIV/AIDS diagnosis and documentation of homeless status.

STEVEN’S PLACE: These eight 1-bedroom apartments in Rock Island are considered Permanent Supportive Housing. All eight are rented in collaboration with the Rock Island Housing Authority so potential residents must be eligible for a Section 8 low-income housing voucher through the housing authority. Rent is on a sliding scale, based on income, with tenants potentially paying as little as $55 per month. Per HUD requirements, residents must meet certain eligibility criteria: diagnosis with HIV/AIDS or another special needs disability AND income limit AND currently homeless or fleeing a domestic violence situation. Tenants receive individualized case management while living in these units based on how much support they require to live independent successfully.

LONGVIEW PLACE: These three-bedroom units are for families where one or both heads of household have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. The units are subsidized through the Rock Island Housing Authority so prospective tenants must meet their requirements in regard to income limits. Tenants receive individualized case management while living in these units based on how much support they require to live independent successfully.
