Housing Stabilization Services
Housing Stabilization Services is a Medical Assistance benefit to help people with disabilities and seniors find and keep housing. They can be referred through their waiver case manager, and if they do not have a waiver, they will need a professional statement of need and a housing focused person-centered plan. A targeted case manager, or care coordinator can complete the housing focused person-centered plan. If an individual does not have a targeted case manager or care coordinator a housing consultant can create the plan. Once the referral has been received Monarch Support Services will enroll the individual with DHS. When the individual is approved for services a Housing Stabilization team member will set up an intake with the individual.
People who do not have waiver or targeted case management or a MSHO/MSC+ care coordinator, but need Housing Stabilization Services, can complete the person-centered planning needed through an enrolled housing consultant. Enrolled housing consultants help a person develop a Housing Focused Person-Centered Plan (DHS-7307) and support the person to select their housing transition or sustaining provider. This service must be distinct from all other services and not duplicate other services or assistance available to the person.
