Project Overview

Our housing model includes a supportive and affordable housing community, serving the homeless, at-risk of homelessness and low-income households. Supportive housing not only resolves homelessness and increases housing stability, but also improves health and lowers public costs by reducing the use of publicly-funded crisis services, including shelters, hospitals, psychiatric centers, jails, and prisons.

This housing model improves housing quality, services, and neighborhood conditions for at-risk households, individuals and lower-income residents. Program types include affordable units, emergency shelter, transitional housing, rapid rehousing, and permanent housing counseling.

Supportive housing, a highly effective strategy that combines affordable housing with intensive coordinated services, can provide that needed assistance to the most vulnerable people with mental illness, chronic health conditions, histories of trauma, and other struggles. A home helps them to get adequate treatment and start on the path toward recovery.
