In November 2012, Siena Francis House opened the first of two permanent supportive housing (PSH) apartment facilities, here on our campus. The second apartment building opened in the spring of 2013. These “Siena Apartments” – constructed along 18th Street, directly west of our existing facilities – complement our women's and men’s emergency shelters, as well as the transitional housing we currently provide with our Miracles Addiction Treatment & Recovery Program.
Each apartment building contains 24 efficiency apartment units (48 total units) and houses a formerly-homeless man or woman, who has a disabling condition, which was a contributing factor in their homelessness. The Siena Francis House’s Permanent Supportive Housing Program provides co-located support services to these once-homeless tenants. Individuals under lease in this program may work with a case manager who can provide information and referrals on-campus and off-campus resources, in order to maintain this stable housing.
For tenancy, Siena Francis House prioritizes individuals who have a disability and are chronically homeless. Referrals for units are received through the Metro Area Continuum of Care for the Homeless (MACCH), HUD CoC NE – 501, Coordinated Entry System.
