EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO A SAFE HOME

We want to help people with psychiatric disabilities protect this right

Have you heard about H.O.M.E.?

H.O.M.E. stands for:


Helping


Others


Maintain


Equality in housing



H.O.M.E. is a special program that assists people who have psychiatric disabilities and are having problems with their housing.


WE ADVOCATE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE DENIED SAFE AND DECENT HOUSING BECAUSE OF A PSYCHIATRIC DISABILITY. WE CAN HELP WITH PROBLEMS SUCH AS:

Housebullet.jpgBad plumbing or heating

Housebullet.jpgInability to keep the apartment clean

Housebullet.jpg Being told you have to move

Housebullet.jpgProblems paying the rent on time

Housebullet.jpg Not getting the support services you need from your mental health provider or State


H.O.M.E. may be able to help you or someone you know who is having housing problems.


THE H.O.M.E. PROJECT IS NOT A STATE AGENCY
OR A PROVIDER OF MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES


PEOPLE RECEIVING DMHAS SERVICES HAVE MANY RIGHTS, SUCH AS:

Checkbullet.jpgBeing treated with dignity and respect
