Since 1970, Boley Centers has been providing
treatment, rehabilitation, housing and
employment services for persons in recovery.
Boley Centers’ mission is to enrich the lives
of people in recovery by providing the
highest quality treatment, rehabilitation,
employment and housing services
Historical Perspective
 Boley was founded in 1970 as a 20-bed halfway
house for men.
 In 1979, Pinellas County (primarily Boley) was
chosen as one of three sites in the State to
develop a “deinstitutionalization project.”
 As a result, Boley expanded from 31 to 200 beds.
 In 1984, Boley purchased its first residential
facility.
 By 1994, all residential facilities had been
converted from rental to agency-owned.
Historical Perspective
 In 1988, Boley received its first (of 10) HUD
McKinney Act Homeless Grants.
 Also in 1988, Boley opened its first HUD 811
funded project - Bessie Boley and Ruth Mosher
Apartments. Ten more followed, Two more are
pending construction, and one was just awarded.
 Then in 1992, Boley initiated a Supported
Housing Program.
Historical Perspective
 In 1999, Boley received 75 HUD Section 8
tenant-based rent subsidy vouchers, an award
of $1,724,780, for people with disabilities. We
now manage 409 housing vouchers with annual

HUD Priorities for the 2011 COC
Permanent Housing Bonus
•To serve homeless and disabled individuals and/or families,
and/or chronically homeless individuals
•While no longer required to use bonus funds for projects that
will serve 100% chronically homeless, COC’s are encouraged to
use funds for this population, it remains a HUD priority
•Demonstrating progress in reducing the chronic homeless
population will continue to be a scored item in the COC
application
•Creating new permanent housing for veterans is another HUD
priority, and HUD strongly encourages COC’s to use at least a
portion of available bonus funds to create a project that will
serve disabled veterans.
