Intensive support and rehabilitation training is provided for those consumers who need assistance obtaining and maintaining community housing. Consumers live in apartments and homes throughout the area. Some individuals reside in The Dean Maberry Center, formerly the Phoenix Apartments. In collaboration with the Waco Housing Authority, Heart of Texas Behavioral Health Network (formerly HOTRMHMR) jointly facilitates the operation of 23 HUD apartments.

The Center has additional specialized housing programs. These include the Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) and Shelter Plus Care programs. In the PATH program, clinicians provide active outreach and support services designed to assist any homeless individual in transition into traditional community support and services to assist them in moving from homelessness. Unfortunately, these individuals are often the most treatment-resistant and require special intervention to help them transition from homelessness.

The Shelter Plus Care program is a partnership with the City of Waco to provide housing vouchers to mentally ill individuals willing to receive specialized services from Heart of Texas Behavioral Health Network (HOTBHN) caseworkers. The program is funded through a grant from HUD. These programs, combined with our Safe Haven Transitional Housing program, offer a continuum of care to the homeless population with mental health issues.

The Center has recently added a Tenant Based Rental Assistance program (TBRA) that provides housing vouchers and supportive services for individuals in need of adequate housing who are currently consumers of the Center.

In addition to these specialized programs, caseworkers routinely provide supported housing supports to assist consumers in living independently in the community.
