Housing Stabilization Services (HSS)

What is Housing Stabilization Services (HSS)?

Housing Stabilization Services is a housing service for all eligible Minnesotans created by the Department of Human Services. The services are designed to help folks living with disabilities to have the person-centered assistance they need to be successful in their housing endeavors – whether that be moving across the street, across the state, or even finding resources to help prevent homelessness.
They can be referred through their waiver case manager, and if they do not have a waiver they will need a professional statement of need and a housing-focused person-centered plan.  A targeted case manager or care coordinator can complete the housing-focused person-centered plan.  If an individual does not have a targeted case manager or care coordinator a housing consultant can create the plan.
Once the referral has been made, SHHCS will enroll the individual with DHS.  When the individual is approved for services a Housing Stabilization team member will set up an intake with the individual.
