Programs and Services
Housing Support Program
We provide support programs for individuals on Medicaid or who are returning to their community from a state mental health facility and need housing assistance. We work closely with clients to find suitable housing that meets their personal, financial, and additional support needs.
We work with individuals to determine their housing preferences (type, location, living alone or with a roommate, accommodations needed, etc.), and support service needed to integrate into the community.
We educate individuals about budgeting for living expenses, working with social services, and about the obligations of being a tenant. We help them connect with social services for assistance in finding and applying for the housing needed to support their medical care needs.
We develop a community integration plan based on their assessment as part of the overall person-centered plan. We help identify short- and long-term goals, and outline how goals will be achieved and how concerns will be addressed.
Once housing is achieved, we continue to provide support through:
- Revisiting the plan as needed
- Coordinating medical, behavioral health, and social services
- Helping navigate the entitlement agencies
- Coaching on independent living skills
- Facilitating special needs and circumstances with property managers
- Providing resources and training to be a good neighbor and tenant
“Miranda at Entrust has been helping my son, David Alaniz, find a place to live in Moses Lake. She used all available resources to help David with his transition back into society. She is very knowledgeable, helps David with paperwork he doesn’t understand, gives him choices, and is very patient with him. I am very grateful and pleased with her accomplishments helping and directing my son to become a responsible individual. Thank you for placing her in our lives.”
– Mrs. Alaniz
