Provides housing to 16 formerly homeless individuals including those who have been frequent users of the emergency medical and corrections systems with permanent supportive housing and case management, in a apartment complex in Germantown.
In addition to providing CHIPP participants with a permanent home and supportive services, data has been collected from a wide variety of public systems of care for two years before, as well as the year following, the participants’ entrance into the project. This information is being analyzed to determine the cost savings to the entire public system of care network resulting from the stability permanent supportive housing offers to individuals with multiple needs. These program participants will be able to remain in housing and receive intensive supportive services after the project’s study portion is complete.
