The Bridge Housing Program at Wood Street Commons

The Bridge Housing Program is located at Wood Street Commons and provides moderately structured support to 15 individuals with chronic mental illness who also have a history of being resistant to treatment and have been or are at imminent risk of becoming homeless. The on-site staff provides a variety of support, including assistance with daily living skills, care management, service coordination, medication monitoring, and health and wellness services.

Our Goals: 
The Bridge Housing Program helps residents gain the resources and skills to move toward independent living.
Who We Serve: 
The Bridge Housing Program serves homeless individuals with a chronic mental health disability.
Impact: 
The Bridge Housing Program allows individuals, who may need extra support, to remain housed and receive comprehensive services while working toward personal goals and transitioning to permanent housing. Bridge Housing is designed to prevent recurrent homelessness, enhance the quality of life for people living with mental illness and to provide community based housing options in lieu of structured treatment facilities.
History: 
The Bridge Housing Program is a transitional housing program funded through mental health funding created nationally in response to the high number of people who were homeless and mentally ill. The program provides housing and supportive services to stabilize people and help them move toward independence in the community.
