SHELTER PLUS CARE HOUSING
Shelter Plus Care Housing is the
least restrictive and most independent level of Residential Services.
In this program, clients live independently and participate in
appropriate levels of counseling and support services needed to
maintain their recovery. Individuals may have been living in places
not intended for human habitation (e.g., the streets), in emergency
shelters, or they may have given up their permanent housing in
order to seek treatment for their addiction and are thus homeless.
This program is a HUD subsidized
rental program for homeless individuals. All participants must
meet HUD's definition of homelessness and income guidelines.
Clients must demonstrate a stable
recovery and the ability to manage their recovery before becoming
eligible for this program. All clients are assigned a case manager
to assist them in the transition to permanent independent housing.
