This document provides an overview of the Homeless and Housing Resource Center (HHRC). The HHRC was established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in 2020. It is designed to deliver training and technical assistance to the community and persons working with individuals who are at risk for, or are experiencing, homelessness. The HHRC promotes the housing first approach as a form of treatment for individuals at risk or experiencing homelessness.

The HHRC works in partnership with national experts in homelessness, mental health, and substance use to develop up-to-date, comprehensive toolkits, webinars, and self-paced online training courses. These trainings are founded on evidence-based housing and treatment models focused on adults, children, and families who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and have a serious mental illness, serious emotional disturbance, substance use disorder, or co-occurring disorder.
