Shelter Plus Care; Goals of the Shelter Plus Care (S+C) Program are to assist homeless individuals and their families to increase their housing stability, skills and/or income, and self-sufficiency.
DCA’s S+C program provides permanent housing in connection with supportive services to homeless people with disabilities and their families. The program provides rental assistance for a variety of housing choices, accompanied by a range of supportive services funded by other sources. The program is designed to serve a population that has been traditionally hard to reach; homeless persons with disabilities such as, but not limited to, serious mental illness, chronic substance abuse, and/or AIDS and related diseases. The S+C program was built on the premise that housing and services need to be connected in order to ensure the stability of housing for this population. Supported Housing Application Packet
