SMCAA Programs: Homeless Shelter to Supportive Housing

Mr. W and his son were homeless when they entered the SMCAA Homeless Shelter​. Through case management, it was discovered that Mr. W was experiencing some mental health issues, and he was referred to Van Buren County Mental Health for evaluation. Following evaluation, Mr. W and his son qualified for the Supportive Housing Program and were able to move into a two-bedroom home. Through SHP, SMCAA continued to pay a portion of their rent for 8 years until the two men were able to move on to their own project-based townhouse.
