Shelter Plus Care
 

Northwestern Pennsylvania Supportive Housing Program

 

Shelter Plus Care - Northwestern Pennsylvania The Shelter Plus Care program is a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funded program that provides participants with a housing subsidy as long as they agree to participate in necessary mental health and/or drug and alcohol treatment. In 2009, it was absorbed into the HUD's Continuum of Care program as established by the HEARTH Act. To qualify, the head of the household must have experienced homelessness for an entire year, either continuously or in four or more episodes. The goal of the program is to assist participants in increasing their income and achieving stability in housing.

 

At Erie County Care Management (ECCM), our goal is to provide supportive services for children and adults who have mental health or behavioral health needs. Get in touch with us to learn more about the Shelter Plus Care program today.
