Overcome the Challenges that Life Throws Your Way
It’s time to reframe mental illness, humanize homelessness, and lend a hand to our fellow community members.
Temporary housing can provide a short-term solution for homelessness, offering a roof and a warm bed as an alternative to a night on the streets.
We’re not a shelter; we’re different.
At DSquared Homes for the Homeless, we work with community partners to connect those in need with transitional housing opportunities that can provide short-term residency for when you’re in between places.
Transitional housing is for:
✔ Youth Aged Out of Foster Care
✔ Seriously Mentally Ill
✔ Individuals Struggling with Addiction
✔ Victims of Circumstance
Fill the gap when you need it most.
Sometimes, homelessness occurs because of circumstances. Individuals who fall a little too short a little too often are most at risk of experiencing temporary homelessness.
This is where DSquared can help.
We provide flexible financial assistance to help you pay the rent.
For the seriously mentally ill, this help can make the difference between having a place to call home and living on the streets.
Hands-on with Sustainable Help that Matters
Volunteers can help us turn recycled plastic grocery bags into sleeping mats for the homeless. It’s something small, but to someone in need–it’s a lot. Through the Plarn program, volunteers crochet or weave sleeping mats from plastic grocery bags.
Sleeping mats help:
✔ Provide insulation and warmth in the cold.
✔ Offer a barrier to protect from damp conditions.
✔ Cushioning for comfort.
✔ Improve hygiene and sanitation.
✔ Protect from pests.
✔ Provide durable, reusable, and transportable relief.
