The Housing, Health and Wellness Program features three services for families and individuals living in small on-site apartments:
- Emergency shelter
- Transitional housing
- Longer-term respite care
The emergency units serve families with children for two months.
Longer-term apartments are available for adults with psychiatric or medical conditions who can stabilize in a supportive residential setting with case management services.
How to receive services?
Families in crisis are referred to ShelterCare by St. Vincent de Paul's First Place Family Center and through Lane County's Coordinated Entry system.
Individual adults may be referred by Lane County Behavioral Health, community partners or other ShelterCare programs.
Additionally, individuals in the ShelterCare Medical Recuperation program may be referred to designated units.
What services are provided?
Parents are supported in their searches for employment and permanent housing. Case management is provided to ensure family progress and stability.
Adults with mental illness and/or medical conditions benefit from case management, crisis planning, life- and skills-training, daily structure and support, medication monitoring, group therapy, access to an employment specialist, and community outings.
