SCATTERED SITE PERMANENT HOUSING
The scattered site permanent housing program provides 5 housing units for families and 8 units for chronically homeless and disabled individuals. This program offers supportive health care, educational assistance, chemical dependency support groups, life skills classes, housing assistance, and other support programs through our partners and case management team.
In 2016, we provided permanent housing for 522 single adults and 153 families (a total of 757 persons.)
reStart currently provides the following permanent housing programs:
A NEW START provides 21 units of permanent housing in a three-building apartment complex for adults with persistent mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse disorders.
In 2016, we provided housing for 22 individuals at A New Start.
THE VOCATIONAL LIVING CENTER provides permanent housing and supportive services for 12 chronically homeless adults with disabilities.
In 2016, we provided housing for 13 individuals at the Vocational Living Center.
Both of these programs offer supportive health care, educational assistance, chemical dependency support groups, life skills classes, housing assistance, and other support programs through our partners and case management team.
THE 100,000 HOMES CAMPAIGN is a nationwide initiative that focuses on finding permanent housing for the chronically homeless. Kansas City became the 131st participating community in the US when reStart launched this program in June, 2012.
In 2016, we housed 150 individuals and 30 families through the 100,000 Homes program.
