CHO is a voluntary supportive housing program for people with serious mental illness. The program is intended to assist people by providing appropriate housing and support services to achieve and maintain stability in a home that is safe and affordable. The program takes a recovery approach and provides access to support services both in the CHO home and in the community.
CHO provides housing, meals, and 24-hour supportive care services in a home setting for people with serious mental illness. Homes that are now part of the CHO program were once a part of the Homes for Special Care (HSC) program.
