Housing

Having a roof over your head is important to being able to take care of your health.

CODAC offers its members information about safe and affordable housing options. We can also help you complete the Vulnerability Index-Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool (VI-SPDAT). The VI-SPDAT is used across Tucson to help medically vulnerable, homeless individuals get connected with housing.

CODAC subscribes to a Housing First model. Housing First is a homeless assistance approach that prioritizes providing people experiencing homelessness with permanent housing as quickly as possible – and then provides voluntary supportive services as needed. CODAC focuses on helping individuals and families access and sustain housing as quickly as possible.

CODAC offers a variety of services delivered to promote housing stability and individual well-being, including:

  • A trained housing team that helps our members find and obtain appropriate housing
  • Education on household management and rental payment
  • Ongoing resources and support services

Transitional Housing Programs

CODAC operates two transitional housing programs:

Adult Transitional Living Program
CODAC’s Adult Transitional Living (ATL) program provides transitional and temporary housing with limited supervision for members ages 18 and older whose health status necessitates additional help and monitoring by CODAC staff. Housing at ATL requires an internal referral and Adult Recovery Team meeting prior to entering this program.

20th Street House
The 20th street house is a 5-bed home for men in CODAC’s Men’s Recovery Services program. This sober living community is staffed 23 hours each day with peers in recovery.

When not at the outpatient treatment center, men who live at 20th Street House get hands-on support finding jobs, enrolling in education, finding permanent housing and simply learning to live a sober lifestyle. Men regularly participate in community NA and AA support groups in the home and out in the community.
