The Florida Supportive Housing Coalition (FSHC) is a statewide advocacy organization of other statewide advocacy organizations, affordable and supportive housing developers, service providers, homeless coalitions, local governments, and other likeminded businesses and individuals who understand the role of stable housing to the health and wellbeing of individuals with special needs or experiencing homelessness.


In the past several years, Florida has made great progress in increasing the supply of supportive housing but even with this progress there is still a significant gap that requires our collaborative advocacy.


Florida Supportive Housing Coalition members are at the forefront of developing policies and initiatives to increase supportive housing for persons with disabilities including persons with mental illnesses, substance use disorders, seniors, and veterans; for youth aging out of foster care, victims of domestic violence, and persons experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.

National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS)

National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS) is a nonprofit organization that aims to eliminate homelessness among veterans in Central Florida. Founded in 2008, NVHS operates two main programs: Search and Rescue, which provides street outreach, basic needs, and housing assistance to homeless veterans; and Supportive Housing, which offers transitional and permanent housing facilities for homeless veterans in Brevard County.

 Through their programs, local government partnerships and nonprofit collaboration efforts they led the reduction of the homeless veteran population of Brevard County from 1,800 in 2008 to less than 200 in 2023, a 90% reduction. Over the last year, NVHS assisted 422 veterans and their dependents through their programs. NVHS is committed to serving the needs of the remaining homeless veterans and the thousands of veterans at-risk of homelessness living in Brevard County.
