Critical Time Intervention (CTI)

RHD’s Critical Time Intervention is a blended case management service that provides support, for a duration of nine months, to adults experiencing homelessness in Montgomery County who also have significant mental health needs. Further, CTI aims to understand the impact of trauma on the lives of those we serve. By evaluating program practices and improving our interactions with clients, ultimately the program will have an advanced understanding of the relationships between trauma, substance use, and mental illness.

The program’s primary initiative is to locate and connect people to adequate, affordable housing units, and provide support as they transition from a shelter or other setting to a new residence. Linkages to mental health services, collaboration with community providers, and the development of natural support systems are paramount and CTI can support clients with those goals. During this critical time, CTI monitors and assesses these supports to ensure their effectiveness in maintaining their new residence and breaking the cycle of homelessness.
