Housing First Program

The Indiana Housing First Program was established through state legislation (Indiana Code 5-20-9) in 2017 to provide rental assistance and supportive services to individuals and families with a serious and persistent mental illness, a chronic chemical addiction, or a serious and persistent mental illness with a co-occurring chronic chemical addiction who are also facing a housing crisis or exiting a residential treatment program. The program uses a Housing First Model, meaning that services provided are voluntarily selected by participants and are predicated on a harm reduction approach to addiction. Housing First is an approach that aims to quickly and successfully connect individuals and families experiencing a housing crisis to permanent housing without preconditions or barriers to entry. Supportive services are offered to maximize housing stability and prevent returns to homelessness or treatment programs.
