Housing Unit



The mission of the Department of Mental Health's Housing Unit is to assist Missourians challenged by 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 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 providing rental assistance to individuals and families with disabilities who are homeless and at risk of homelessness. We also make efforts to expand housing options for all persons with disabilities 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.

For an overview of all DMH Housing programs in 2022, see this one-page report.
