(Hisle Park)

Hisle Park is a needs-based program for young adults 18 – 24 years of age who have aged out of foster care, are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. For this reason, applicants are not chosen by date and time. We have units with multiple bedrooms to assist young adults with children.


The first step involves applicants completing an intake at Shawnee Family Health Center located at 901 Washington Street, Portsmouth, OH. There are no appointments needed to do so. Interested applicants can walk in anytime M-F from 7:30am to 4pm.


Individuals will complete an application for Hisle Park in addition to the intake. During the intake process at Shawnee Family Health Center, the clinician will complete a needs-based tool to help determine a level of priority. The Prioritization Committee will meet and vote on placement based on the current circumstances, diagnosis and the needs-based score each time there is a vacancy at the site.


Once approved by the Committee, the applicant will be referred to Portsmouth Metropolitan Housing Authority to complete the required paperwork. You will need birth certificates, social security cards, and proof of income prior to leasing.
