Project: HERS – Housing, Employment, and Recovery Support

Principal Investigator: Noel, Jeffrey
September 30, 2016 - September 29, 2019
Funder: SAMHSA

Project: HERS is a partnership with Queen of Peace Center (QOPC), a substance use treatment center for women and families, and Connections to Success (CtS), an organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty through hope, resources and plans. The goals of the project are to provide substance use disorder treatment, stable housing, and systematic employment training for women and families in the St. Louis Region. Sustainability will be achieved through implementing the MISSION Model, an evidence-based treatment approach that includes stable housing as a crucial component of long-term recovery. Once staff are trained in the Model, the impact will carry forward beyond the life of the grant. OOPC is the primary grantee and provides substance use treatment, care coordination and housing for participants. CtS is the provider for employment training including extensive training on areas of resume writing and interviewing skills. In addition CtS will provide individuals employment coaching. MIMH is providing process and outcome evaluation for the project including data collection and analysis, and dissemination of findings through reports and Evaluation Bulletins for stakeholders and consumers; MIMH will also assist with any conference presentations or preparation of manuscripts for publication.
