Housing

Safe, affordable housing is the foundation upon which people can build their best possible lives. When major challenges of health or circumstance are being faced, a safe place to live is paramount. Without worry to this basic human need, more attention can be focused on taking other necessary steps toward a balanced life. Community Connections offers housing supports to homeless individuals and/or families living with mental illness who are in need. Recipients must meet criteria. Please call 814-371-5100 for more information and an application.
