This Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) and the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) are excited to announce the Supportive Housing Institute ("The Institute). The Institute will focus on developing deeply affordable housing with support services (supportive housing) for Missouri residents who are experiencing chronic homelessness and persons who are emotionally or mentally impaired or experiencing, or being treated for, or have a diagnosis or a history of mental illness. The Institute will help supportive housing partners learn how to navigate the often complex process of developing housing with supportive services to prevent and end homelessness. Participation in the Institute is expected to increase supportive housing development in communities across Missouri by training teams on ways to reduce the time it takes to obtain funding for supportive housing by improving the planning and development process. Below are the documents to apply for this amazing opportunity. All APPLICATIONS ARE DUE by December 2, 2022.

Reentry Housing Resources Map
The Department of Mental Health, Department of Corrections and the Governor's Committee to End Homelessness, have collaborated to create an interactive map of housing resources in Missouri for people reentering the community from incarceration. The map is an ongoing process to collect information about every program in Missouri that provides permanent housing, transitional housing, and emergency shelter, and so can also be used to locate resources for persons experiencing homelessness generally.
The map's search function is county-based. To find resources, choose the appropriate county by clicking on the map or choose a county from the drop-down menu in the lower left corner. Choosing a county shows all the resources entered for that county. You can limit the results to programs most appropriate to your needs by clicking boxes in the list on the right. For instance, limit your search to programs for women only by clicking the "Serves females only" box.
Any agency with appropriate programs located in Missouri can add their program information to the map, subject to editing and approval by DMH Housing staff. Agencies with multiple programs of different types should make separate entries for each program, e.g., one entry for a permanent housing program and one for a transitional housing program; or one for a shelter serving only men and another for a shelter serving only families.
