Chemical and Mental Health Treatment

House of Charity serves single adults in the Twin Cities, many of whom struggle with chemical dependency, mental illness, and homelessness. The 2015 Wilder Research study reported that 57% of Minnesota’s homeless adults have a serious mental illness, 51% have chronic, physical health conditions, 30% show evidence of traumatic brain injury, 21% have been diagnosed with drug/alcohol abuse disorder, and 80% have one or more of the above.

Of Hennepin County’s population of homeless adults, those who have experienced long-term homelessness: 55% have a serious mental illness, 18% have a substance abuse problem, and 16% have a dual mental illness and chemical dependency diagnosis. Having both is a significant barrier to housing.
