Abstract

The Grant Street Partnership (GSP) is a new, community- developed, sheller-based program of clinical and case-management services for homeless, cocaine-abusing men in New Haven, Connecticut. The fist component of the GSP is a 90day residential program in which residents progress from one level of accomplishment and responsibility to the next, culminating in an assisted search for suitable housing and for employment or job training. Upon completion of the residential component, the clients continue in case management and clinical services for approximately six months on an ambulatory basis. The GSP has a second agenda of being an agent for improvement of housing, employment, and job-training services in New Haven Because a wide spectrum of cily institutions were involved in the development of the GSP, the partnership thus developed has continued and is being redirected toward institutional change of the type needed by the GSP clients.
