HHRC was established in August 2020 with funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Operated by Policy Research, Inc., HHRC works in partnership with national experts in homelessness, mental health, and substance use services to develop up-to-date, comprehensive toolkits, webinars, and self-paced online trainings.
HHRC will provide training on housing and treatment models focused on adults, children, and families who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness who have:
- Serious mental illness and/or serious emotional disturbance
- Substance use disorders
- Co-occurring disorders
