The King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) is pleased to release this Request for Proposals (RFP) for Housing and Recovery through Peer Services (HARPS) with funding from the Behavioral Health and Recovery Division (BHRD).
Homelessness is traumatic, cyclical, and puts people at risk for mental health and substance use disorders (SUD). Homelessness also interferes with one’s ability to receive services and jeopardizes the chances for successful recovery.
HARPS was developed to reduce homelessness, to support the recovery and resiliency of individuals with behavioral health conditions, and to support the transition from institutional settings, in particular inpatient behavioral healthcare settings, into housing.
HARPS offers housing support services and Housing Bridge Subsidy designed from a recovery perspective and based on Evidenced-based Practice of Permanent Supportive Housing (EBP PSH). Certified Peer Counselors (CPC) deliver services based on these principles.
This RFP seeks a community organization to establish a HARPS team and deliver HARPS housing support services and Housing Bridge Subsidy to the community.
