Connections: Home, recovery, and community

In April, 2020, Centerstone was awarded a $2 million, five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and Center for Substance Abuse Treatment.

The grant will help individuals experiencing homelessness and substance use disorders (SUD) or co-occurring disorders (COD) in Franklin, Jackson, Union and Williamson counties.

Centerstone will receive $400,000 per year for five years and will use those funds to develop and/or expand local implementation of a community infrastructure that integrates SUD treatment, housing services, and other critical services for youth, adults and families experiencing homelessness. The program that Centerstone has created with this grant has been named “Centerstone Connections: Connecting with people through home, recovery, and community in Illinois.”

Connections will provide outreach and housing navigation using a “housing first” approach that focuses on providing housing as a top priority without precondition or service participation requirements.

Connections will also provide:

  • Evidence-based treatment.
  • Case management.
  • Direct SUD, COD, and trauma treatment.
  • Recovery housing.
  • Assess to federal income supports.
  • Screenings and assessments.
  • Individualized and integrated substance use treatment and planning.
  • Linkages to primary and specialty care.
  • Peer and wraparound recovery supports such as employment and education services; benefits engagement and enrollment; and education and counseling on hepatitis treatment, sexually transmitted infection and HIV screening.

A Connections Advisory Council of stakeholders and focus population members will support Connections’ goals, which include providing treatment and recovery support; developing and expanding the infrastructure and capacity of an integrated community service system; improving client health status and outcomes; increasing permanent housing and related support services; and developing and disseminating a replicable service model. If you are interested in serving on this Connections Advisory Council, please reach out to Quigley at andrea.quigley@centerstone.org.
