The Shelter Plus Care Program provides rental assistance for hard-to-serve homeless
persons with disabilities in connection with supportive services funded from sources
outside the program.
Shelter Plus Care (S+C) is a program designed to provide housing and supportive
services on a long-term basis for homeless persons with disabilities, (primarily those
with serious mental illness, chronic problems with alcohol and/or drugs, and acquired
immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or related diseases) and their families who are
living in places not intended for human habitation (e.g., streets) or in emergency shelters.
The program allows for a variety of housing choices, and a range of supportive
services funded by other sources, in response to the needs of the hard-to-reach
homeless population with disabilities.
