Valley’s Homeless Programs serve individuals ages 18 and older who are homeless and have a severe mental illness (SMI). We work closely with other community resources, such as the Fourth Street Clinic, the Road Home and the Salt Lake County Housing Authority.
Valley Storefront is a non-traditional outpatient facility that provides services to SMI homeless individuals who may also have another disorder, such as substance use. This acts as an entry point into treatment for those who are reluctant to try traditional mental health options.
Safe Haven Transitional Housing
Safe Haven I has 25 transitional housing units for SMI clients who have been homeless for at least three of the previous six months. Residents of Safe Haven are able to maintain their status of homelessness so they can continue to qualify for permanent housing.
Safe Haven Permanent Housing
Safe Haven II has 24 permanent housing units for homeless individuals challenged by a history of homelessness, mental health and substance use issues. They are assisted with apartment living/home maintenance, medication management, benefit management, skills development, socialization and peer support services.
Valley Homefront Permanent Housing
Valley Homefront offers eight permanent apartments for homeless individuals who generally do well with little supervision. Residents receive in-home visits twice a week and are required to attend monthly tenant meetings.
Shelter and Care Voucher Program
The Voucher Program is a collaboration between Valley Behavioral Health, Salt Lake County and West Valley City Housing Authorities. It offers Medicaid clients subsidized housing with supportive services in the community through Shelter and Care vouchers. We serve nearly 150 clients with various HUD (US Department of Housing and Urban Development) subsidies.
