Safe Haven
and Oasis House

Safe Haven is a 13-bed transitional housing program operated by Community Healthlink, Inc. and fully funded by HUD. There are 9 beds in a house that is staffed 24 hours a day and 4 beds in community setting apartments with minimal staff supervision. The program utilizes the housing first model and houses chronically homeless adults, dually diagnosed, who generally suffer from untreated mental illness and substance abuse issues. Although the program offers an indefinite length of stay, the program still provides many services that assist clients in obtaining medical, psychological, and financial stability so that they may obtain housing and return into the community to succeed independently. Rehabilitation services are also available on site. All referrals are made through Community Healthlink’s Homeless Outreach and Advocacy project (HOAP).

Oasis House is an 8-bed transitional housing program operated by Community Healthlink, Inc. and funded by HUD. The program houses chronically homeless adults with severe and persistent mental illness, often untreated. The goal of the stay is to engage clients in mental health treatment and encourage them to connect with mental health providers. Residents are expected to contribute 45% of their income as program fees, which cover the cost of clients' rooms, utilities, and food. Residents are expected to be free of substances. Oasis house is staffed 24 /7 to monitor and support clients, who are allowed to reside at Oasis House up to two years. The program provides many services to assist residents in obtaining medical, psychological and financial stability so they may obtain permanent housing and return to the community to succeed independently. All referrals are made through Community Healthlink’s Homeless Outreach and advocacy project (HOAP).
