The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s (IDHW) Treatment and Transitions (TNT) Program serves individuals with severe mental illness and/or a co-occurring disorder who are experiencing homelessness or housing instability. The project is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. As the Project Evaluator, Idaho Policy Institute oversees all evaluation activities and works closely with IDHW program staff to design data collection strategies, monitoring, and reporting for this program with the objectives to:
- Measure the program’s ability to meet its stated goals and objectives, and
- Inform IDHW’s decisions for program improvement.
This report serves as the second annual evaluation of the program.
Key achievements in this year include admitting 80 Idahoans experiencing severe mental illness and/or co-occurring disorders into the TNT Program. To date, the program has launched three enhanced safe and sober houses and has directly provided 107 Idahoans with stable housing and supportive services.
