Supportive Housing is a great option for individuals living with a mental illness who need safe, affordable housing, as well as ongoing professional mental health support. We currently provide a variety of supportive housing options at 21 locations across Minneapolis suburbs in Hennepin County.

Supportive housing includes single family homes that provide shared living arrangements. People have their own bedroom and share the rest of the house with roommates. Most locations are close to public transportation to support the independence of our residents.

The defining component of supportive housing is ongoing support. Customized support is provided by our Mental Health Housing Support staff. Support strategies are focused on helping people become active members of their community as well as assisting people in recovery goals.

Tenants’ rent depends on their income and placement. We have GRH, subsidized, or low-income market rate units. Rental subsidies, including Section 8 certificates, can be used to make up the difference between an individual’s resources and the current rent. Subsidies for rent are provided by H.U.D. and other funding sources. Priority is given to individuals who are homeless.
