FaSST/Connections (Family Shelter Support Team) is a behavioral health care unit that provides evaluation, linkage, and coordination of services to individuals and families living in various shelters. FaSST/Connections’ primary outcome is to engage families with a history of mental health problems and/or substance abuse. Families receive linkages to various programs such as mental health, drug and alcohol treatment, housing referrals, legal services as well as counseling and consultation with FaSST/Connections staff and other agencies including shelter staff. Advocacy, ongoing support, and empowerment are the key concepts of FaSST/Connections and the qualitative determinants of its service outcomes.
