Research has shown that stable housing is essential to helping persons with serious disabilities recover and become productive members of the community. Since mental illnesses strike persons who are young, usually between 18 to 25 years old, their education and career development is often affected. The result is that many persons cannot afford decent and safe housing because they are unemployed. Without temporary assistance with housing, too often persons with mental illnesses become homeless or hospitalized.
