The Protective Payee Program serves individuals who have chronic mental illness, developmental disabilities, or are dually diagnosed and are recipients of Social Security benefits.
Our goal is homeless prevention through the financial management of benefits. Basic needs such as shelter, food and clothing are met through the services of the Protective Payee Social Worker. When money is budgeted and bills are paid on time, clients stay in their housing and prevent homeless episodes. Stability in housing is the primary goal of this program, but with stable housing comes the opportunity for clients to identify and achieve other personal goals. These may include education, employment, and learning new skills that will enable them to reach a higher level of potential and become contributing members of the community.
