DOH MRT Supportive Housing
The DOH MRT Supportive Housing Health Home Pilot Project provides supportive housing services that include emergency and short-term rental subsidies, one-time emergency utility assistance, housing location and peer-based health promotion services throughout Madison, Onondaga and Cayuga counties. This is accomplished through the implementation of an array of evidence-based practices leveraging our current supported employment programs, peer-based behavioral strategies to improve health outcomes and wellness programming; crisis diversion/24-hour support derived from an Intentional Peer Support (IPS) model while using some evidence-based engagement and housing first model practices. Goals are for clients to improve life functioning and stability in terms of chronic medical conditions, stabilize the behavioral health issues which contributed to their homelessness and thus become engaged in treatment, and achieve positive reintegration to the community through housing stability, as evidenced by participation in treatment, attendance of self-help groups, and a defined support network.
