Tenancy Support in the Context of Housing First
Supporting people as they transition into permanent housing is a key part of providing person-centered, recovery-oriented care. Tenancy support (sometimes called psychiatric rehabilitation) encompasses a wide variety of activities and may include identifying community resources, teaching people skills to navigate conversations with landlords and neighbors, mastering activities of daily living (ADLs), developing hobbies, and connecting meaningfully to the community. Over the course of three weeks, we will define the full range of tenancy support, discuss how to create person-centered plans with tenants, and practice the skills needed to have meaningful conversations that support tenant growth and connection.
