California’s growing affordable housing crisis is especially challenging for those with mental health disabilities who are experiencing housing instability. Affordable, inclusive and safe housing is vital to good mental health and wellbeing. The leading cause of homelessness is a lack of affordable housing, and over the course of the COVID-19 crisis, LifeSTEPS’ client assistance program has provided more than $550,000 to keep struggling individuals, families, seniors and veterans across California from losing their housing. Additionally, through extensive case management, our specialized supportive services program has helped secure more than 260 permanent homes statewide for homeless residents struggling with mental health issues.
