Description

CHSP is the PHA’s home management services program, designed to offer residents services to maintain their independence and live on their own for as long as possible.

CHSP is an individualized program for residents who are elderly or disabled and require a moderate amount of non-medical services to maintain independence. Specifically, CHSP assists with the following:

Service Coordination

Each CHSP hi-rise has a CHSP Coordinator, who is available for information and referral, and customized support based on individual needs. This may mean setting up appointments, arranging transportation, making contacts with community resources and working with the resident and their teams to ensure needs are being met. CHSP staff observes each participant on a daily basis to ensure that his or her unique needs are being met.

Meals

Good nutrition is an essential part of health and well-being. CHSP recognizes this and offers daily meal services. There is one meal per day served Monday through Friday, and two meals per day on Saturday and Sunday. Meals are served in a congregate dining setting in the hi-rise community room. A second meal on weekdays is offered in conjunction with the Title III meal provider if eligible.

Housekeeping & Laundry

A healthy and clean living environment is another essential component of health and well-being. CHSP provides regular scheduled housekeeping assistance. Laundry assistance is also available. Assistance provided is based on resident need and ability.

A Nurturing Community

A key to successful living is affordable housing. CHSP participants live in a private one bedroom apartment in one of five designated St Paul Public Housing Hi-rises. CHSP Participants are able to take advantage of all of the building’s amenities. The hi-rise communities offer many opportunities for participants to socialize and involve themselves in community activities. In addition, special CHSP on-site activities are planned to promote enjoyment and a sense of belonging for participants.

Cost

CHSP fees are very affordable, as they are based off of a percentage (10% to 20%) of each individual’s income. A grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and matching community resources cover the remainder of the program costs.

Application Process

Internal and external applicants are invited to apply for CHSP. If you are not currently residing in St Paul Public Housing, you will need to complete two separate applications; one for housing and one for CHSP. If you already reside in St Paul Public Housing, you would only need to fill out the application for CHSP.
