It is estimated that 67% of the homeless population are adult individuals. To address this, the majority of Depaul USA programs are oriented to homeless adults.
Project More and Project Plus
Project More/Plus are permanent supportive scattered site housing programs. All clients have a major mental illness, and many have one or more behavioral health and/or chronic health issues. The participants are housed in one-bedroom apartments throughout St. Louis and rent is paid directly by Depaul USA. These two programs were among the highest ranked scattered sites programs in the St. Louis Continuum of Care for the Homeless initiative.

Rapid Re-housing for Chronically Homeless Individuals (RRCHI) moves individuals from the streets and into their own apartments and provides them with supportive services to maintain their housing. Depaul USA works closely with the housed clients for up to 24 months and then transitions them to independence and permanent supportive housing.
Coming Home quickly connects clients to permanent housing without any preconditions or barriers to entry. Clients were living on the streets, in shelters, or abandoned buildings for over a year now live in apartments throughout Orleans and Jefferson parishes. All clients see a primary care physician, have mental health evaluations, and connect with other social service organizations.
Depaul USA’s first program, Depaul House, is a 27-room recovery house for men in Philadelphia. All referrals originate with the Philadelphia Office of Addiction Services (OAS). This program is innovative in its employment-focused approach to help men move out of homelessness. It seeks to achieve systemic change: breaking the cycle of poverty by working with people who are living on the margins and integrating them into the community.
