FCC Behavioral Health offers a variety of housing services for persons who are homeless. Our target population is homeless persons who suffer from mental health or substance abuse disabilities; especially those with co-occurring problems that often lead to chronic homelessness. Our housing programs fully comply with the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Equal Housing Opportunities.
Our Project for Assistance to Transition from Homelessness (PATH) program is funded from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH). PATH services are typically the first point of contact for persons in need of housing services offered by our agency. Through case management and rental assistance we were able to assist over 350 individuals and families each year.
Our Permanent Housing Program (PHP) project is funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The PHP program provides permanent housing, in the form of rental assistance, to homeless persons with mental health, substance abuse, or co-occurring disabilities. Eligibility for the program consists of: documented homelessness, documented disability, and proof of income. This program serves 3 counties (Butler, Dunklin, and Pemiscot). We annually serve 13 individuals and 19 families, who were successfully engaged in active clinical services through Family Counseling. Our Cape Women and Children program is able to assist 14 single women and 13 families annually.
SEMO Safe Haven’s mission is to provide innovative, safe, affordable, permanent housing, coupled with mainstream resources and supportive treatment services to chronically homeless persons who suffer from mental health and/or substance. We have a total of 8 residential chronically homeless units.
New Beginnings 811. Through the Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program, HUD provides funding to develop and subsidize rental housing with the availability of supportive services for very low-income adults with disabilities. The Section 811 program allows persons with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community by subsidizing rental housing opportunities which provide access to appropriate supportive services. We have a total of 10 units for low-income, disabled residents of Poplar Bluff.
Shelter Plus Care (S+C). Our agency also provides referral assistance for The Shelter Plus Care Program through Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Shelter Plus Care (S+C) provides rental assistance for hard-to-serve homeless persons with disabilities in connection with supportive services funded from sources outside the program.
