The Supportive Housing & Behavioral Health Liaison Services Program screens and serves participants with housing, transportation, harm reduction, and behavioral health needs, seeking to help them access care, identify payment sources, and complete successful intakes. This is achieved through active collaboration with participants, community providers, and partners to make information and solutions in these areas readily available. The Supportive Housing Liaison and Behavioral Health Liaison have asset lists of local resources in their focus area to supply solutions to participants.
The Program provides support to WSTC Clinical and Outreach staff. Liaisons communicate industry-related information and share resources to ensure staff has the knowledge and assistance to serve clients by delivering effective wrap-around care.
