The mission of the Department of Mental Health's Housing Unit is to assist Missourians challenged by mental illnesses, substance abuse/addictions and developmental disabilities in obtaining and maintaining safe, decent and affordable housing options that best meet their individual and family needs. The DMH Housing Unit believes that housing is a key to helping Missourians with disabilities and their families attain self-determination and independent living.
All Missourians challenged by mental illnesses, substance abuse/addictions and developmental disabilities have housing options that are affordable and accessible, integrated into communities, and provide real choice.
What We Do
DMH Housing works to abolish homelessness in Missouri by collaborating with DMH's Division of Behavioral Health and Division of Developmental Disabilities to provide rental assistance to homeless mental health services consumers and those at risk of homelessness, using both federal and state funds. We also make efforts to expand housing options for all mental health services consumers in the state; and to assist in creating vital partnerships between housing developers and non-profit agencies in the development of affordable rental units statewide.
