Crossover House Program – Crossover House provides outreach, engagement, mental health and transition services for individuals who are on the streets and in shelters who may experience a severe mental illness or co-occurring substance abuse disorders. The focus is on the early stages of treatment through outreach and engagement of individuals who are not currently or have never been involved with the mental health system. Crossover House is generally the gateway into homeless and housing services within ACMHS. Services are provided in shelters and in the community where homeless persons congregate. Intensive case management services are provided to assist individuals to make the choice to become involved in formal treatment services and break the cycle of homelessness.
Pathways to Recovery – Pathways is a street outreach, engagement and intensive case management program targeting the chronic public inebriate and those with co-occurring severe mental illness. Staff work to engage individuals into treatment and recovery from substance abuse with the goal of successful placement in long term permanent housing with supports.
Permanent Housing Program – Permanent Housing focuses on providing intensive support services and permanent housing to persons who are homeless and mentally ill. Many experience co-existing disorders in addition to severe mental illness. Individuals are referred to the Permanent Housing Program by other clinical teams within ACMHS or at intake, as appropriate. Clients must meet Federal definition of homelessness and inability to maintain residential stability with standard support services for sustained periods of time. The purpose of the program is to provide long-term permanent housing and the supports necessary to maintain that housing. Clients are primarily referred by the Crossover House Program.
