Community Action Council, Inc.
Simms Housing Project
 Simms Housing is a permanent supportive housing program that provides chronically homeless people a place to stay, intensive case management and security.  The program serves residents who have physical or cognitive disabilities, and/or a history of substance abuse and mental illness. 
Staff work with residents on individual needs including medical appointments, shopping, transportation, informal counseling and basic living skills.  Staff also link residents with mental health services, Meals On Wheels, Visions (visually impaired), home health, legal services and assist with access to food pantries, substance treatment and other services based on the residents’ eligibility and interest.  Participation in those services is not part of the criteria to be in the program.
