Relocation in Texas is getting tuff. We don't have ALF's and Adult foster cares that cater to those with psychiatric issues or severe complex needs. We also have issue with agencies under Medicaid not have enough works and not attracting works to care for our consumers once they are home as they will not pay the minimum going rate of $10 an hour in state. Any way to help us in Texas? We have gone backwards 15 years instead of forward with dealing with issues involved and resources once we are getting people relocated as we don't have resources we used to refer people to in area towns such as Adult Day Care as they have all shut down due to lack of private funding and lack of Medicaid reimbursements in Texas. It is really tuff out here in West Texas as we get the least funding in our large state.

Sounds great, We have people waiting 6 months to 2 years plus to get affordable housing in Texas Region 2.

takes much longer to get accessible and affordable housing that folks making under $1,000 a month or $12,000 a year can obtain.

Please describe what housing options are most consumers able to move into longer term, since many states have little to no affordable ELI housing or HUD vouchers available. Thanks!

At Roads to Freedom we started with consumers who we already knew wanted to transition and then worked on getting the word out that we are offering the relocation program

Has FEMA been collaborating with you or has this been aspirational since far?

Some data are showing that there has likely been a year-long spike in discharges against medical advice the past 12 months from LTC facilities. These are unsupported emergency relocations, people taking it upon themselves to get out of high risk institutions. They are far costlier than relocations via agencies such as RTF and Atlantis, as people go homeless or fail to receive appropriate supports. Emergency relocations should be a permanent program in IL work.

Will check with carceral communities about relocation... who if anyone is doing anything. I have yet to interact w/anyone who knows about CILs let alone use them.
Tim Fuchs (he / him)
01:26:14
Great, thank you, Janine!
Peter Grosz
01:31:31
A transition agency in Chicago has sought out people who discharged against medical advice from LTC facilities and put around 10 individuals in hotels so far. This is much costlier than anticipating unsupported discharges and putting residents in temporary housing before they leave.

Todd Holloway

One survey per CIL correct?
Tim Fuchs (he / him)
01:39:26
Hey Todd, I'm not a researcher, but yes, I think that one response per CIL would be ideal! :)
Scott Campbell

I just have to say this has blown my mind! Incredible!
