This pilot program is a new and unique coordinated care program in Harris County that will pilot a direct partnership between Harris County Public Health, a variety of additional County departments, the homeless response system, and community services with the goal of improving Harris County homeless population outcomes through providing Permanent Supportive Housing, Coordinated Care Management, Enabling Technology (WCM), comprehensive service portfolio (e.g., medical, mental health, housing, etc.), and braided funding.
This cohort will operate as a Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) program in connection with the Coalition for the Homeless. This program will serve people experiencing homelessness who are eligible for PSH which will provide long-term housing with supportive services to persons who are chronically homeless and have a documented disability or people who are literally homeless with a documented disability if there is no one on the waitlist who qualifies as chronically homeless.
Goal: To house 150 individuals experiencing homelessness who have a physical and/or behavioral health condition.
