Community Residential Programs
- Scattered Site Program MSP provides services to men and women with psychiatric disabilities, helping them to live in their own apartments, “scattered” throughout the Hartford area, by providing supportive services to help them gain and maintain self-sufficiency.
- Rapid Rehousing Models During FY 2009 MSP has played a role in two Rapid Rehousing demonstration projects.
- The Rapid Rehousing Pilot Project - This project involved a collaboration between My Sisters' Place, the Salvation Army, The Coalition to End Homelessness and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. MSP played a fiduciary role in the project by providing security deposits and first month's rent for families, who were referred to the project by area social service agencies and emergency shelters. Through a grant obtained by MSP from the Lincoln Financial Foundation additional program dollars were made available to serve Families First, to extend the reach of this pilot program. A total of 25 families were served in the course of the year.
- Counselors in Shelters: Rapid Exit Another program, funded by the State Department of Social Services paid for counselors assigned to emergency shelters to work with families who can be quickly placed in new housing.
