The HOME, HOME 2 STAY and YOU'RE HOME programs serve men, women and families who are chronically homeless and whose head of the household has a documented disability. Participants live in an apartment or a house and pay 30 percent of their adjusted gross income toward rent, with our housing programs paying the balance, as well as assistance paying utilities if needed. Case management, referrals to community resources, individualized planning, crisis support, money management and 24-hour staff accessibility are also provided.
Participants eligible for permanent supportive housing are referred to us by Metro Area Continuum of Care for the Homeless (MACCH). These individuals will be referred to MACCH by local shelters and outreach workers. Please contact shelter staff or outreach workers about eligibility for permanent supportive housing.
