Supportive Housing Services
We acknowledge that housing stability and quality is a significant social determinant of health. Households must have affordable, stable, quality housing to appropriately care for themselves, address and manage health needs, and achieve and maintain their overall health and wellbeing.
BNC is committed to developing opportunities to provide accessible, affordable, quality housing for Douglas County, and to increasingly grow the center’s capacity to provide housing as a primary component of treatment for households experiencing significant housing instability.
Since 2006, a team of trained case managers from Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, through a partnership with the City of Lawrence and a federal grant, has been reaching out to the city’s homeless population. It provides coordinated service delivery, decreasing the duplication of services, and to strengthen community partnerships.
Homeless Outreach Specialists provide services to those community members to support them as they obtain their desired level of independence. Program participants need not be experiencing mental health issues to receive services.
