The Shelter Plus Care Program provides permanent subsidized housing units for 45 households who have been homeless and are chronically mentally ill.
To be eligible for the program, households must be homeless and have a diagnosed disability. Candidates for Shelter Plus Care are drawn from participants in Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services programs for the homeless. Case managers recommend households to the Mental Health Association, who assess those households and make final referrals to Shelter Plus Care.
HOC can only accept referrals from this organization. There is no process for applying for Shelter Plus Care on your own or applying for a referral.
The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services has offices throughout the County, but you can ask for Housing Services at:
