HOPE – PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING SERVICES
Director: Lawrence Thomas 480.226.0216
Associate Director: Annie Anderson 480.828.3404
The goal of Permanent Supportive Housing services is to support individuals transitioning from homelessness or inadequate housing to live independently in the community of their choosing. The program utilizes Peer Support Housing Specialists and Behavioral Health Technicians under the clinical guidance of a Behavioral Health Professional. The aim of the program is to connect individuals to sustainable housing and supportive services that increase the resiliency of the person, independent living skills with a focus on health and wellness for the mind, body, and spirit.
Following the fidelity of Permanent Supportive Housing along with Critical Time Intervention, and motivational interviewing the Peer Support Housing Specialists will be with the person as they make this important transition using person-centered, strengths-based and recovery-oriented approaches. They will assist the person through the apartment search and lease up process and integrating into the community of their choice. The Hope staff will collaborate and advocate with the person’s Direct Care Clinic, medical providers, and other community supports to increase engagement, living skills, independence and connection to needed resources. Each person will have one on one contact as needed to ensure success in the community with the long term goal of linking to permanent supports and successfully remaining housed long after they exit the program.
