Permanent Supportive Housing . . . . . . .
This program provides homeless, disabled adults and their families with certificates to live in 35 apartments scattered throughout the New Britain area. PEAK pays the landlord rent and participants pay a fee based on their family income. PEAK staff facilitate communications between client-tenant and landlord so that needs of both are met and the client has the best possible opportunity for successful independent living in the community. Funded through the US Department of Housing & Urban Development
Arch Street Housing is a community of once-homeless individuals and families who have overcome tremendous challenges toward the goal of living independently in apartments of their own. The combination of a permanent home with built-in case management services is a proven formula for supporting homeless people as they attain and maintain their dreams. Arch Street Housing consists of 21 one- two- and three- bedroom apartments at 59 and 85 Arch Street in New Britain.
Initial funding for Arch Street Housing was a private/public partnership made possible by a community capital campaign and Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA). Ongoing support services are funded by the Connecticut Department of Housing and Mental Health and Addiction Services.
The Home at Last (HAL) program provides 10 chronically homeless, disabled adults with certificates to live in apartments scattered throughout the New Britain area. These individuals have substance abuse and/or physical or mental disabilities making them the most vulnerable of the homeless population. Built in case management services provide support to ensure they remain in stable housing as they work towards successful independent living. Funded through the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) and the Department of Housing (DOH).
