Point After Club Housing
Garden Street Apartments
In 1993, our parent agency Mental Health Resources Plus (MHRP) sponsored an application to the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development for a grant under HUD’s Sec 811 program. This all – encompassing program (Garden Street Apartments) provided funding for the acquisition and renovation of two houses near the clubhouse site, which provides ten one bedroom units.
That is about 1/8th mile from the club. The Club provides ongoing housing supports to these members, helping them negotiate any problems they may have with independent living, with maintaining their apartment and any other issues that may arise living in this large apartment community.
In 1992 we received funding from the Department of Mental Health to subsidize five club members at Heritage Common, a limited equity co-op apartment complex. That is about 1/8th mile from the club. The club provides ongoing housing supports to these members, helping them negotiate any problems they may have with independent living with maintaining their apartments and any other issues that may arise living in this large apartment comunity
Clubhouse Housing Demonstration Project
In 2002 our parent agency applied for Clubhouse housing support grant through Department of Mental Health. Our Clubhouse proposal was funded as well as five other clubhouses in the state. With this grant we have been able to subsidize an additional 4 units of housing for members, and hire a housing coordinator whose responsibilities include providing individualized housing supports to members identified as being residents of this program. They also provide general housing supports to the clubhouse’s general membership. Supports that have been provided include roommate/neighbor mediation, outreach, landlord/housing authority negotiations, and assistance with subsidy applications, apartment search, moving or cleaning/maintaining apartments.
With this grant we have been able to assist members who need help paying for their first mouths rent / security deposit; which enables them to move into their own apartment. This fund is a revolving fund that is available to members; an affordable pay back plan is established for members to pay back the fund.
In helping members in their search for housing we have been able to utilize an internet program called Housing Works. Housing Works offers updated information on any housing subsidies that are opened. This program also includes assistance in finding pantries, specialized shelters (domestic violence) and specialized housing (HIV).
