There is a serious mental health workforce shortage. In states with the lowest workforce, there is up to 6 times the individuals to only 1 mental health professional. This includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and psychiatric nurses combined.*
As a social benefit, providing affordable, permanent, and supportive housing addresses the immediate needs for long-term stability and productive citizens which reduces substantial financial strains on our communities and taxpayers alike, such as incarceration at $171 per day and over-utilized hospitalization (emergency room) stays at an average of $990 per visit per day.
Broward Housing Solutions saved Broward County taxpayers approximately $1.3 million last year – simply by providing quality, permanent, supportive, and affordable housing opportunities to its low-income or homeless tenants with disabilities who also struggle with mental illness.
Broward Housing Solutions is committed to providing quality housing opportunities for those struggling with mental illness and working toward stability, recovery, and reintegration back into society becoming contributing citizens of our community.
Every gift is tax deductible and makes you a proud partner in Broward Housing Solutions’ mission, and a contributor towards making Broward County a better place in which to live.
