Project H.O.M.E. (Housing Opportunities, Medical Care and Education) is an innovative, multi-faceted homelessness prevention program in Philadelphia, PA, designed to reduce individual, community/ neighborhood and societal risk factors for the recurrence of homelessness among individuals with severe mental illness and/or substance use disorders. Tailored to the needs and abilities of each individual, Project H.O.M.E. uses a combination of prevention strategies that includes street outreach, three levels of housing, extensive on-site services (education, employment, health care, addictions counseling, and social activities) and linkages to other services. Project H.O.M.E. also advocates for the homeless population through political activism. (Authors)
