Housing Services Overview
Compass Health currently provides affordable housing assistance to more than 500 individuals throughout Snohomish, Skagit, and Island Counties. Most of the housing supports those who have a chronic mental illness and are experiencing homelessness.
Housing services are available to adults 18 years of age and older who are receiving services; primarily single adults, although there are some resources available for families with children.
We are able to provide safe and affordable housing in a variety of ways, through ownership and management of houses and apartment complexes, sponsorship of subsidies such as Shelter Plus Care and Section 8, and collaborations with area Housing Authorities and other housing providers. By providing safe and affordable housing, we are offer individuals an opportunity to focus more fully on symptom management and daily living skills, rather than whether they will be spending the night on the street or in an unhealthy or stressful environment.
Compass Health housing can be accessed through the Coordinated Entry system for each County. Coordinated Entry can be accessed by calling 211. Individuals seeking housing will be required to meet with Coordinated Entry housing resource specialist to begin the referral process. When there is a housing opening, the applicant referral will be made from the County Coordinated Entry candidate pool.
