Canvas Health’s supportive housing is a successful, cost-effective combination of affordable housing with services that helps people live more stable, productive lives. Since 1990, the Canvas Health housing program has assisted adults with mental illness and substance use disorders in obtaining and maintaining safe, affordable, and stable housing.
Canvas Health housing is located throughout Washington County and includes a variety of temporary and permanent housing options for formerly homeless adults with substance use and mental illness disabilities.
Canvas Health’s Service Coordination is a program that works in conjunction with housing services to provide onsite social workers in buildings occupied by seniors. They offer information, referral and general housing support.
Service Coordinators work in conjunction with property management companies that provide housing for seniors and disabled individuals. The goal of service coordination is to help residents maintain stable housing and to remain living independently in the community. Service Coordinators provide education and support resources for tenants to help identify issues that could jeopardize their leases or might otherwise impact their housing in a negative way.
