Since the 1980’s, SELF has been on the forefront of innovation creating new and effective approaches and service delivery models to improve the lives of those recovering from homelessness, mental health challenges, substance use, and incarceration. Under the leadership of Dr. Sylvester Outley, SELF Inc. provided supportive and client case management services for the majority of the City’s shelters. In essence, Dr. Outley was the architect of the City’s emergency shelter system.
Today, SELF continues to lead policy discussions and provide guidance and valuable input to our provider and funding partner networks. Our President and COO Mike Hinson’s contributions have had a significant impact on how the City sees and treats participants with medically fragility. Our evidence-based programs and special initiatives help create a path to transformation for our participants.
