MHA's Residential Care understands that housing is a cornerstone to stability and good mental health. MHa offers a variety of services aimed to assist individuals and families facing homelessness so that they can find and maintain safe, affordable housing.
CABHI is a Cooperative Agreement to Benefit Homeless Individuals funded by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. This program provides a warm touch to those in need by providing supportive staff to assist with applying for disability/social security benefits, obtaining employment, pursuing educational goals and getting into safe, affordable housing. Eligible recipients will be assigned to a collaborative team that will include a case manager, peer mentors, employment specialist and benefits specialists. Together the CABHI team provides a second chance for those who are ready to make a change.
Eligible applicants are chronically homeless individuals that have been homeless and living or residing in a place not meant for human habitation, a safe haven, or in an emergency shelter continuously for at least 1 year or on at least 4 separate occasions in the last 3 years.
MHA's Rapid Rehousing program provides rental and housing assistance for those who are chronically homeless and have a disability. Individuals must meet the HUD guidelines of chronic homelessness to qualify for this program. This program is funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
