Our Supportive Housing Program provides housing and case management services for people who are homeless and unable to afford housing because of a physical or mental disability. We currently have six one-bedroom apartments for single adults. Our case managers work with tenants on an on-going basis to help them remain in stable housing and meet their health care needs. Funding is provided through a combination of grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), The Sonora Area Foundation, program fees paid by tenants, private donations and fundraising activities.

This program provides permanent supportive housing to individuals or families who have become homeless as a result of a physical or mental disability. It consists of six scattered site apartments which are leased to Sierra HOPE.

Our program participants include people with physical disabilities and people with severe mental health disorders. They may remain in the Permanent SupportiveHousing program as long as necessary. Participants are charged a program fee of up to 30% of their monthly income to help cover the cost of services provided to them. Those who have no income at program entry receive assistance to apply for benefits they may be eligible for, including Social Security Disability Insurance, which can be a lengthy process.

Supportive services, whether provided by Sierra HOPE or other mainstream community resources, are essential to helping the client access appropriate treatment to manage the symptoms of their illness or disability and live independently. Our case management team works closely with each resident to assess their needs and develop a personalized care plan, and provide on-going monitoring and advocacy to help them access needed services, maintain compliance with medications and treatment plans, and accomplish individual goals towards improved self sufficiency.

Sierra HOPE works closely with other service providers including non-profit organizations, local government agencies, medical providers, and mental health services to obtain appropriate referrals and coordinate care.
