Permanent supportive housing to serve and support at-risk populations in Lewis County.
Our Commitment to Ending Homelessness
Reliable Enterprises offers a variety of housing services to at-risk populations as part of their commitment to ending the housing crisis in our community. We are the leading provider of permanent supportive housing in Lewis County, maintaining over 120 units between eight properties.
Permanent supportive housing, paired with targeted services for at-risk individuals and families, is the most effective measure against chronic homelessness. Stable, supportive housing not only reduces the financial burden of homelessness on communities, but also leads to more academic success for at-risk youth.
