Housing First

We believe that housing is an essential human right and are committed of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Permanent Supportive Housing Evidence-Based Practices. We abide by the principle that everyone is “ready” for housing “with the right supports” and strives to provide housing in the easiest way possible for individuals using our services.

Continuum of Care

We are a proud member of the Tucson/Pima Coalition to end Homelessness and the Arizona Balance of State’s Continuums of Care in Cochise, Santa Cruz, Pinal, Graham, and Greenlee Counties, and are committed to ending homelessness in Arizona. Our staff actively participates in continuum committees and the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), which act as part of the community-wide commitment to end homelessness.

Through funding from numerous sources, Intermountain Centers, and its subsidiaries, our Community Partnership of Southern Arizona/Community Partners Integrated Healthcare is able to provide rental subsidies and support for over 800 households in Arizona.

If you, or a loved one, are in need of housing and are receiving behavioral health services, please contact your care coordinator (case manager) and request they complete an application for housing through the Arizona Behavioral Health Corporation (ABC Housing).

If you are not receiving behavioral health services, please contact your local homeless shelter to be screened for housing opportunities through HUD’s Continuum of Care programs in your local area.
