Housing Choice Voucher - Shelter Plus Care (Homeless Program)
MHA utilizes the Shelter Plus Care (S+C program) Voucher Program. The Shelter Plus Care program provides rental assistance to homeless individuals/families with disabilities. Disabilities primarily include mental illness, chronic problems with alcohol and/or drugs, and HIV/AIDES or related diseases. There is a waiting list for this program, and vouchers are limited. You will be notified when your name comes to the top of the waiting list. PLEASE keep us informed of any address change. To qualify for the S+C program, you must be homeless and residing at The Salvation Army (615)895-7069, the Room In The Inn (615)896-7016 or the Domestic Violence Shelter (615)896-2012.
