Reedy Place serves as refuge for people who are experiencing chronic homelessness and have a serious mental illness. They close the gap in housing and services available for those individuals who, perhaps because of their illness, have refused help or have been denied or removed from other housing programs.
Reedy Place, established in 2006, serves as United Housing Connections' Permanent Supportive Housing units that offer 15 homes to the adults experiencing chronic homelessness with a serious mental illness as a Housing First option. Housing First is an approach to quickly and successfully connect those experiencing homelessness to permanent housing without preconditions and barriers to entry, such as sobriety, treatment or service participation requirements.
