Integral Care received a $10,000 grant from the Religious Coalition to Assist the Homeless (RCAH), a coalition of Austin-area faith communities that provides grant funds to social service providers to expand the capacity of local housing and shelter programs. Funding from RCAH will help Integral Care provide wraparound support services for the residents of Terrace at Oak Springs and future residents of Studios at Menchaca, two single-site, permanent supportive housing communities.
All residents have experienced chronic homelessness and live with mental illness, substance use disorder, and/or other chronic health conditions. In permanent supportive housing communities like Terrace at Oak Springs and Studios at Menchaca, offering flexible, voluntary support services can help individuals stay housed, build their self-sufficiency, and contribute to their communities. Onsite wraparound services in the residential portion of the building will include case management, peer specialist support, benefits counseling, education, and job training/supported employment.
