The Representative Payee Program at the MHA in Rochester helps to promote a higher level of independent living through guidance, education, and support to prevent eviction, loss of utility services, lack of food, debts and financial exploitation.

The BC-Homes Representative Payee, also at the MHA, assists individuals, who are struggling to maintain stable housing, by budget planning to ensure that all living expenses are covered, and by collaborating with community partners to support the individual’s recovery and community integration. The BC-Homes Payee program differs from our Representative Payee service in that this service is available to individuals whose income source is County Assistance entitlements, wages, in addition, to being available to individuals receiving Social Security benefits.
