Shelters, Supported Housing and Homelessness

Supported housing provides a key layer of stability for individuals with behavioral health issues. Individuals may seek different housing types: from group housing (supervised and unsupervised) to rental housing and home ownership. Supportive housing is a middle ground option that features independent living with the potential for support and intervention as needed. For those individuals on parole or probation, they may transition from progressively less restrictive housing as their treatment and reentry progresses (e.g., from step-down housing to supervised or unsupervised group homes to supportive rental housing). The goal is to avoid releasing someone into an unstructured or homeless setting where decompensation is more likely.
