Services
Many families and individuals come to HEP lacking access to everything from personal hygiene to medical care. With community partnerships and personalized case management, HEP is able to provide a variety of needed support services.

Supportive Housing Overlay Program (SHOP)

SHOP is an integrated, recovery-oriented system of care to prevent and reduce chronic homelessness.  This program assists homeless individuals with serious psychiatric conditions or mental and substance abuse disorders.

In partnership with Baycare Behavioral Health and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment.

Research shows that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system, and produces feelings of well-being. Drumming workshops are just one example of SHOP’s innovative approach to treating mental disorders.
