Supportive Housing Services
**Please note that if you’d like to work with one of our housing case managers, please call 2-1-1 for a referral to our housing program.
One of the basic requirements in establishing a strong foundation for a successful recovery is safe, affordable housing. To that end, BHcare has secured resources to provide a variety of supportive housing settings to the homeless or “at risk of being homeless”. These include subsidized Next Steps slots; slots with subsidies from HUD; subsidized slots for families, young adults and low-income people; and PILOTS slots. Support services are provided to assist people with being good tenants and obtaining the skills necessary to be successful in their own apartments.
Rent Subsidy Programs
BHcare has rental subsidy programs for individuals and families coming out of homelessness or at risk of homelessness. Each subsidy program has its own specific eligibility requirements. This is scattered site housing throughout the Lower Naugatuck Valley and the Greater Shoreline areas. Each tenant secures his/her own unit and signs a lease with the property owner. Support services are available for all subsidy holders.
