San Mateo County Recognizes Telecare Program for Housing

Housing Hero Awards

The Behavioral Health and Recovery Services of San Mateo County held its annual Housing Heroes awards ceremony on October 22. Telecare’s Transitions program was among the selected programs and organizations recognized for excellence in providing stable housing for people with mental health and substance use issues. Transitions Administrator Kevin Jones accepted the award.

In 2008, San Mateo County began awarding individuals as Housing Heroes to acknowledge those who work towards ensuring that those living with a mental illness are able to afford housing in their community. This is Telecare's second award; current FSP Housing Coordinator Lee Cates was recognized for excellence in housing in 2013.
