The Sandoval County Permanent Supportive Housing Program provides HUD-funded supportive housing rental assistance coupled with comprehensive case management, service coordination and advocacy services to chronically disabled persons (and immediate family members) who experiencing homelessness. Our mission is to offer participants the motivation and means to thrive, not merely survive, to achieve greater self-sufficiency, and to claim their places as positive, engaged members of the communities in which they live.
- Housing Access Assistance -assist participants to identify suitable housing units, establish relationships (act as a liaison with landlords), conduct periodic home safety inspections prior to move-in, and payment of move-in deposits and monthly rental assistance.
- Client-Centered, Strength-Based Case Management Services - Focus on facilitating participants' abilities to retain stable housing and increase self-sufficiency by connecting participants to mainstream services/benefits for which they may be eligible, and encourage participation in treatment services and activities such as secondary education, vocational rehabilitation and financial literacy training.
