Shared Housing

The Shared Housing Program is designed to assist mental health consumers in securing housing.  Unlike the Permanent Supportive Housing criteria, mental health consumers interested in the Shared Housing Program do not have to be chronically homeless.  Also, the Shared Housing Program consists of 2-3 tenants living in the same home, rather than living in their own apartment. Each tenant has their own bedroom, treating the other  rooms in the home as common areas.  Currently, there are 2 Shared Housing homes, both located in Mt. Pleasant.  One home is for males and the other home is for females.  Referrals can be made by self-referral or through local mental health and/or community agencies.  For additional information, please contact Shared Housing at (724) 552-0305 ext. 207.
