Texas Veterans Commission awarded Integral Care $260,000 in May 2023 to support community service assistants at Safehaven, a transitional housing unit that provides temporary housing for up to 15 veterans experiencing homelessness and mental illness and/or substance use disorders. With this funding, Integral Care will be able to provide 24/7 Community Service Assistant (CSA) coverage at our Safe Haven transitional shelter. This funding will ensure we have two CSAs on site for each shift. CSAs will respond to all issues related to the provision of a low barrier, 24-hour emergency shelter for Veterans experiencing homelessness. Activities include meal preparation, monitoring self-administration of medications, ensuring a safe and hygienic environment, and coordinating healthy leisure activities.
