Permanent Supportive Housing Program (PSH)
Trillium's Permanent Supportive Housing Program is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) funded program that provides rental assistance and supportive services to people with disabilities who are experiencing homelessness. Trillium's program specifically targets people who have a serious mental illness, substance use issues, and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities.
Rapid Rehousing Program (RRH)
Trillium’s Rapid Rehousing Program is a HUD CoC funded program that provides short-term rental assistance to people who are experiencing homelessness.
Continuums of Care
The U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by non-profits, states, Indian Tribes or tribally designated housing entities and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness. CoC funding serves homeless populations through permanent supportive housing, rapid re-housing, coordinated entry, and Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) projects through an annual application process. For more information visit NC Coalition to End Homelessness.
North Carolina has twelve Continuums of Care and Trillium participates in the two that serve our region: the Cape Fear Homeless Continuum of Care and in the Balance of State Continuum of Care. Trillium actively engages the CoCs to collaborate with community stakeholders focused on housing and homelessness services to together best serve individuals and families with housing needs.
The Cape Fear Homeless Continuum of Care is a standalone CoC in Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender Counties that meets monthly. For more information, please visit the Cape Fear Homeless Continuum of Care website. Contact Trillium housing staff member Brian Fike at 1-866-998-2597 for more information about Trillium’s participation.
The Balance of State Continuum of Care serves 79 counties in North Carolina, including the rest of Trillium’s catchment area. The counties are divided into regions to better address the needs of particular areas, and each region meetings monthly. Trillium participates in these regional committees in a variety of roles, including lead, alternate lead, and more. For more information on the Balance of State and monthly regional meetings please visit The NC Coalition to End Homelessness Balance of State webpage. Contact Trillium housing staff members Kisha Darden or Brian Fike at 1-866-998-2597 for more information about Trillium’s participation.
