Our Housing Program is a collection of smaller programs that offer supported apartments for homeless individuals with substance use disorders. These apartments are located throughout Erie and Niagara Counties. Supportive services like relapse prevention, assistance with daily living skills and budgeting, and vocational development are available. Certain programs within the collective follow a Housing First approach.
Housing staff members work closely with residents to assist them in finding and obtaining apartments in communities of their choosing. The agency also provides services and assistance with:
- Rental subsidies
- Security deposits
- Obtaining furnishings and appliances
- Ensuring that residents obtain and maintain services that they are entitled to (e.g., veteran and Social Security benefits).
Our Housing Program connects its residents to:
- Outpatient treatment
- Primary and specialty medical care
- Mental health services
- Education and vocational services
We recognize that everyone’s individual path to recovery is different. Our care reflects this as every resident chooses their own personal recovery goals and relevant recovery groups. Each person’s stay is unique and can vary. It all depends on what each person needs.
Cazenovia Recovery is proud to be an organization that offers Trauma-Informed Care. Our staff members provide care that is sensitive to past traumas. We also create environments that are safe, trusting, and collaborative. Most importantly, we seek to empower each and every person in our programs.
Our Housing Programs have apartments available throughout Buffalo and its surrounding suburbs, Lockport, and Niagara Falls. Our Housing Programs receive funding and oversight from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, and the Departments of Mental Health in both Erie and Niagara Counties.
Applicants to our Housing Programs may need to be or have one or more of the following:
- Adults 18 years of age or older
- Chronically homeless
- A substance use diagnosis
- Completed or participating in either a residential or outpatient program
For individuals who are currently homeless, all referrals must go through the local Coordinated Entry process. For more information about Coordinated Entry, please visit the Homeless Alliance of Western New York.
