Partners’ Housing Coordinators make sure people have options for clean, safe, and affordable housing. Our goal is to give everyone capable of living independently in the community the opportunity to do so. Coordinators work with community groups, boards, councils, and organizations sharing our goal for housing for people with mental illness, substance use disorders, and intellectual or developmental disabilities.
If you are looking for a safe and affordable place to live, talk to your provider or call one of our Housing Coordinators listed below.
