TRANSITIONAL SUPPORTIVE HOUSING SERVICES
Transitional Supportive Housing programs are non-licensed residential programs that can offer safe short-term housing along with varying levels of support depending on the needs of the Member. ColumbiaCare has contracted with Multnomah County to provide exclusive use of in-home, transitional services at our Rosebud facility to their Members who have a mental health concern; who need temporary or transitional housing and support services; and who are not in need of hospital or Crisis Resolution Center level of care. Tenants are identified and referred through the contracting agency, and admission is a collaborative process between ColumbiaCare and the referring entity. Unless otherwise arranged, tenants provide their own food, clothing, transportation, personal items, and medication. ColumbiaCare staff provide 4 periodic health and safety visits per 24-hr period that, whenever possible, coincide with medication schedules. ColumbiaCare provides a layer of safety and supervision--through documented visits, as well as on-call availability. Professional staff may provide therapy, skills training, psychiatric services, health services, case management, and other therapeutic services as requested and pre-authorized by the Multnomah County. ColumbiaCare also provides food services (delivery of up to 3 meals per day plus snacks) when needed and pre-arranged. This type of program can be accessed or duplicated in your area.
