Housing Supports, Health, and Recovery Services for Homeless Individuals (HHRHI)
In HHRHI the priority is to ensure that individuals and families not only secure housing, but also maintain permanent housing. We provide a whole health approach through the use of trauma informed and harm reduction services emphasizing the use of the following evidence-based practices:
Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) ensures the availability of safe and affordable community-based housing that is inked to voluntary and flexible supports designed to meet tenant's needs and help maintain housing (e.g. psychiatric services, crisis intervention, relapse prevention, advocacy, benefits coordination, life skills training). PSH is a means to sustainable recovery and resiliency.
Peer Recovery Support Services are provided by Certified Peer Support Workers (CPSW)
Supported Employment uses theIndividual Placement and Support (IPS) model, a community-based approach to support individuals living with SMI and COD find and keep competitive employment through rapid job placement and on-going support. IPS focuses on the strengths and choices of individuals.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a way of talking with people to support an individual to resolve ambivalence about a behavior change by eliciting and enhancing their intrinsic motivation for change. All CPSWs are trained and receive supervision in the use MI to support individuals and families to move toward their recovery oriented goals and reduce harm.
