Chronically homeless people have a variety of needs: for mental health and substance abuse treatment, employment, and health care. As they move into permanent supportive housing, there are a variety of service delivery models that can be used to address these needs. This workshop will examine these models including supported employment, assertive community treatment, and others.

The powerpoint presentations for this workshop are available for download above.
