Permanent Supportive Housing Syracuse
Helio Housing First (16 units) and KEES II (48 units) programs serve homeless individuals with qualifying disabilities (for example substance use disorder, mental illness, physical limitation). Helio Health will work intensively with residents, using a person-centered/motivational interviewing approach to encourage residents to participate in self-sufficiency goals. These goals may include:
- Applying for mainstream benefits such as SSI/SSDI
- Temporary assistance
- Medicaid and food stamps
- Connecting residents to supportive services
- Assisting with employment and education goals
Individuals entering this program are selected from the Coordinated Entry list.
