Foundational Community Supports (FCS) Program

You are here

In addition to our own housing and employment services, we also offer support in these areas for anyone who is Medicaid-eligible - even if you are not a client in another Pioneer program.

HOUSING

  • Need help finding or maintaining housing?
  • Transitioning into the community from jail or treatment?
  • Experiencing difficulty living independently?
  • Have a mental health or substance use disorder diagnosis?

Our FCS supportive HOUSING services are designed for individuals experiencing barriers to housing stability with verified risk factors such as being homeless, experiencing unstable housing, facing barriers to independent living, or living with maximum independence in community-integrated housing.

Pioneer’s specialists can provide you with support in obtaining community services including, but not limited to: healthcare, social services, resources, housing, employment training, and recovery education and support.

Our community-based team can work with you to overcome the barriers you face and support you on your journey to independence.

EMPLOYMENT

  • Need help building a resume?
  • Seeking to increase job skills?
  • Facing barriers to employment?
  • Want help with goal setting and career planning?
  • Have a mental health or substance use disorder diagnosis?

FCS Supportive EMPLOYMENT services are designed to assist individuals who want to find stable work. You will be personally assessed by a staff member and given assistance in your goal planning.

The FCS program uses the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model for supported employment and this can be integrated with other behavioral and social services that you may already be involved in within the community. The goal is to help you become as independent as possible in your own vocational role, while providing support and assistance as needed.
