Housing Support Program

Martin House, Inc. provides affordable, single-room occupancy housing, serving fifty-four adults who have experienced mental health problems, substance abuse issues, homelessness, and poverty in the Eastern and Southern Connecticut region. Our staff is on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to address residents’ needs.   Individual rooms are furnished with a twin bed, nightstand, lamp, bureau, and chair; residents may choose to purchase a small refrigerator, coffee pot and microwave for their room. In addition to a private room, program fees include three cafeteria-style meals per day. While we are not equipped to accommodate special diets, we are mindful of various dietary restrictions when preparing meals.

Martin House is not just a place to live; it is a place for adults who have committed to improving their lives. We expect residents to use the program as a foundation so they can work toward achieving their goals. We offer a framework for residents and have an expectation that they will put forth effort to move toward the next level of independence. 

Each resident is expected to participate in regular, productive activities of their choosing. Work, education, and volunteering are examples of these. There is an expectation that residents will take pride in the upkeep of their private spaces as well as the facility as a whole. Room inspections are conducted weekly. Residents may be asked to assist with dining room set up, dishes, cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming common areas, etc.   Martin House is designed for people in the active phase of recovery moving toward maintenance. We are an abstinence model of recovery, requiring candidates to have achieved at least 6 months of abstinence in a non-contained environment prior to admission.
