ACTS Treatment for Homeless: Evaluation of the Refuge Project

About the Project

The purpose of this project is to evaluate a federally funded (SAMHSA) program developed to end homelessness among those with people that have been labeled public inebriates who may also have co-occurring mental illnesses. Working with two community partners ACTS and MHC, the evidence -based intervention is called Critical Time Intervention (CTI). CTI is short term intensive case management that serves to move people quickly from the streets into stable housing and connect them with existing community services.
