Housing

SBS’s Housing Program is a peer-run service designed to provide people with an alternative option to traditional residential and supported housing programs. The purpose of the program is to provide transitional housing, respite, and hospital diversion . We provide housing for people re-entering the community from inpatient hospitalization, or for those who have not benefited from traditional residential or supported housing programs. We also provide short term respite with the goal of preventing crisis and reducing unnecessary hospitalizations.
