Breaking the Vicious Cycle of Homelessness…
… is the reason why Belkin House exists.
“We believe it is not enough to simply treat the exterior of the wound of suffering and homelessness – but to assist in facilitating real healing and real change from within a person.”
“What is ‘Breaking the Cycle of Homelessness’?”
It’s a proactive approach to the tragedy of poverty and homelessness.
It’s practical assistance and mentoring.

Belkin House Personal Development Plan (PDP) Program
Active positive participation in a personal development program is a fundamental requirement of supported housing residency at Belkin House.
Our PDP Program was purposely designed as the “next step” for men and women seeking to break the cycles of poverty, despair and destructive patterns of living, and to progress forward towards positive, productive, self sufficient and independent living within the community.
Our Program is particularly beneficial as a continuum of support for men and women who have just completed a residential addiction treatment program. Program participants also enter our PDP Program through the emergency shelter system, the correctional system, and through referrals.
With the aid and encouragement of one of our Counselors, program participants determine their own measurable and attainable personal development goals and begin working towards them within a safe and supported community environment.
Giving hope – the PDP Program equips program participants with the necessary and critical life, living and employment related skills and facilitates healing and transformation in the lives of the men and women who come to us for help.
