Community Outreach and Recovery Support Team (CORS)

Part of a continuum of services for individuals needing additional support to stabilize their housing.

What is CORS?

A specialty team within our outpatient service offerings, the CORS team partners closely with many community partner agencies as part of a continuum of services, engaging clients seeking housing support who are either unenrolled from a health plan or seeking enrollment. The CORS Team aims to help clients access housing resources and other necessary services. They are reliable consultants regarding mental health, case management, and other community resources to clients and other local agencies within their service area. 

More specifically, this service also works with clients in support of the following:

  • Support and assistance with maintaining timely rental payments, lease adherence, and making maintenance requests
  • Help accessing and/or maintaining benefits income (SSI, ABD/HEN)
  • Supporting and advocating for them when they make reasonable accommodation requests of their landlords
  • Facilitation of housing transfer to a better-suited unit for client needs

Who does CORS serve?

CORS serves clients 18 and older who are currently unhoused or experiencing housing instability, and are either not engaged, or are poorly engaged with treatment services. This service is for individuals who need additional support to access and maintain benefits, food, vocational support, healthcare, and housing. 

Approach to care

The CORS team comprises a mix of Peer Counselors and Clinicians who work in the community to connect with and assist individuals who would benefit from more intensive treatment services. The CORS team coordinates closely with other Compass Health treatment teams and community partners who serve the same individuals. 

Goals of CORS

CORS clients’ goals are to obtain housing and/or establish a stabilized housing situation and develop mental health and life skills that help them get there. 


Services in this program include the following, based on client need:

  • Care Coordination
  • Housing Referral and Support
  • Outreach and Engagement
