According to the Massachusetts Association for Mental Health, “Safe Havens are a “Housing First,” supportive housing model that provides an alternative to shelter placement. The program is designed to serve hard-to-reach individuals who are chronically unhoused and often have disabling mental health and substance use conditions. Safe Havens serve a population that is chronically homeless, often with significant behavioral health conditions. They’re among the highest users of emergency departments, hospital beds, and emergency medical services, and have high rates of involvement with police and the justice system. Many have not been well served by the shelter system, due to past histories of trauma and safety concerns.”

This session is co-hosted by the Opioid Task Force of Franklin County and the North Quabbin Region and the North Quabbin Community Coalition.
