Howie the Harp Peer Training Program
Steve Coe, CEO, Community Access
Howie the Harp Peer Training Program (HTH) is a peer-run program that provides employment resources to people with psychiatric disabilities. The peer training program is Community Access’ flagship program, designed for people with a history of psychiatric disorders seeking employment in human services who wish to use their personal experience to help other peers seeking recovery services within the mental health care system.
Sam Tsemberis, CEO, Pathways to Housing
The Housing First Model is simple: provide housing first, and then combine that housing with supportive treatment services in the areas of mental and physical health, substance abuse, education, and employment. Housing is provided in apartments scattered throughout a community in order to foster a sense of home and self-determination as well as speeding the reintegration of clients into the community.
