Community Support Programs - Shreveport, LA



Programs And Services:

BRIDGES
Located in the Highland area, BRIDGES is a ten-bed 'safe haven' designed for the mentally ill homeless, who are unwilling or unable to participate in mental health programs and community-based services. For those who have been living on the streets with a mental illness, the transition to permanent housing can be a shock. BRIDGES provides a small, highly supportive environment where an individual can find shelter and be subject to relatively few service demands. Eventually, once clients become comfortable and are engaged by staff and other program participants, they can participate in mental health, substance abuse and other treatment and supportive services.

Crossroads II
Located across the street from Virginia Place, Cross Roads II is a HUD, LHFA, and City of Shreveport funded supportive housing program. It provides permanent housing for 16 homeless individuals diagnosed with chronic mental illness.

REACH
A nine bed facility across from BRIDGES, REACH serves the most intractable of the homeless population. These clients are diagnosed with co-occurring disorders: 1) a mental illness, and 2) substance abuse such as drug use or alcoholism. Once at REACH, clients progress through a two-year, individualized program with four goals: abstinence from substance abuse, mental health stability, permanent housing, and attainment of entitlements and employment. The program also encourages clients to create their own personal goals – a crucial step toward independence.

CENTER FOR WOMEN
Permanent supportive, community-based housing for 9 women who are in recovery from substance abuse dependency and have experienced homelessness.
