Homelessness & Mental Illness

Community Advocates Milwaukee Wisconsin

From Crisis to Independence

All too often, people experiencing mental health crises end up in the back of a squad car on the way to jail or a hospital emergency room. These outcomes can be both traumatic and costly, but there are better alternatives. Since we know a high percentage of those who are homeless are also living with mental illness, Community Advocates dedicates behavioral health staff to working with these individuals exclusively. 

Our Homeless Outreach Nursing Center, Autumn West Safe Haven, and Project Bridge provide services and resources that address the unique needs of those living with a mental illness in unstable living conditions.
