6th Judicial: Drug Court Housing First

In September 2018, Iowa Sixth Judicial District Department of Correctional Services received a five year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to implement services that incorporate the principles of the Housing First model program. This project addresses the housing instability and lack of resources needed to support clients in the Linn County Iowa Drug Treatment Court program by providing supportive housing and greater access to detoxification and residential substance use disorder treatment. Resources for Human Development (RHD) delivers case management and housing resource services to individuals in the project. The Consortium is responsible for conducting the evaluation for the grant.
