- Shelter Plus Care (S+C) provides rental assistance combined with support services. Eligibility criteria include chronic homelessness and severe mental illness.
- Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) provides short-term rental assistance for chronically homeless individuals with disabilities who have a good chance of achieving housing stability within 12-24 months.
- Homeless Assistance Recovery Program (HARP): We are the lead agency that works with local homeless service providers to identify and refer homeless applicants to HARP.
We help people of all backgrounds, including veterans, youth and families. All our supportive housing staff are trained in our guiding philosophy of recovery and wellness, person-centered treatment planning, and community inclusion of those we serve.
Our program provides both housing and supportive services to enable and empower the person to change his or her life. These supportive services address the mental health, substance abuse, life skills, educational, employment and other issues that challenge the individual. The array of services are provided by Southwest Counseling Solutions and numerous partner agencies that have come together in this comprehensive effort to treat the underlying conditions of homelessness.
One third of our staff are peer specialists who know firsthand the experience of homelessness and recovery from serious mental illness and substance abuse. We have more than 20 peer specialists who are in a unique position to assist and encourage the homeless persons who enter our programs.
