Where to Start
Finding a quality, safe, affordable, permanent place to call home can be a very complicated process. But it’s also one of the most rewarding journeys a person ever takes. Below we have provided information you can use as you begin your search for housing.

Some homes prefer that their residents are TennCare recipients. If you are not a TennCare recipient, learn more about the benefits and eligibility, and find out how to apply. Get information about TennCare

Case Management
Some supportive living and independent congregate living homes request that their residents have a case manager. If you do not have a case manager, we have information on the benefits of case management and how to access a case manager. Learn more about case managers.

If you would like assistance with housing placement but do not want or need case management services, we can help. Learn more about housing coordinators.

Peer Support Centers
Regardless of where you live, everyone benefits from having a strong support network. Whether it’s a friend to talk to over a cup of coffee, or someone to watch TV or play cards with, Peer Support Centers provide support to people with mental health issues. We also offer education about recovery from mental illness. Walk-ins are welcome. Find out more about Peer Support Centers
