A place to call home
About 40 percent of homeless adults have a mental illness. By providing safe, affordable housing and support services to low-income people with mental illness, we’re helping to relieve the burdens of poverty so our clients can focus on recovery. In addition to the 280 units of affordable housing we own or manage in Seattle, we also offer three specialized community housing programs:
Every day, hundreds of severely mentally ill Seattle residents make their homes in the streets, shelters, and greenbelts of the city. Our multi-disciplinary PACT team reaches out to help. We connect homeless individuals with housing, treatment, and wraparound services, resulting in fewer people on the street, in jail, and in state hospitals—and more people living independently.
Expanding Community Services
An alternative to long-term institutionalization for people with severe mental illness, our ECS program provides care in a community setting, at a much lower cost. We provide intensive support services, assistance reconnecting with family and friends, and structured activities that help clients develop a community of support.
OASIS Older Adult Services
Mentally ill seniors often need housing tailored to their particular needs. Our OASIS program gives low-income seniors and their families an alternative to nursing homes and state institutions by providing community housing, therapy, and support services that emphasize care, compassion, and quality of life.
