THE HOUSING CONNECT model is projected to be a multi-year initiative.
Housing Connect provides access to permanent supportive housing for:
Wayne County Medicaid eligible participants with mental health disorders or mental health and substance use disorders
Participants in restrictive settings
The Housing Connect model provides centralized access to Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) services.
In order to comply with Executive Order 2020-114, Lincoln Behavioral Services has posted recommended guidelines within the premises and has included those specific portions of the order shown below that have guided our measures to ensure the safety of consumers, employees and visitors to Lincoln Behavioral Services facilities. These measures are included on our website to document our commitment to ensuring the health and safety of all concerned. We will continue to monitor and implement suggestions from the Governor, CDC, MDHHS, and OSHA as things are updated with new information and recommendations.

The Goal of Housing Connect
We provide housing services that have a minimum need of 3 months.
To help participants living in restrictive setting such as Adult Foster Care (AFC) to move toward self-sufficiency by assisting them into independent living environments.
The project will assist participants with the necessary supportive services to maintain one's independence.
The project was formulated by evidence based practices that support mental health recovery and independence.
Development of a recovery-oriented, Housing First culture.
Enhanced PSH competencies for case managers and support coordinators.
Demonstration of evidence-based Supportive Housing practices system-wide.
Consumer/family empowerment and enhanced awareness of PSH options.
Integration of PSH data into MH-WIN to optimize monitoring and evaluation.
Increase movement of consumers from restrictive settings into PSH.
