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.

Alex's Story

My name is Alex, and I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder 31 years ago.  It’s defined as a mental illness that causes dramatic shifts in mood, energy, activity, and concentration. These dramatic shifts range from periods of extremely elated, irritable, or energized behavior (known as manic episodes) to very sad, indifferent, or hopeless periods (known as depressive episodes).  

 In essence, bipolar disorder has disrupted every aspect of my life at one point or another.  It’s affected my relationships, work-life balance, educational goals, and yes even my home.  In my early 20’s I was facing it alone, but these days thanks to some very special moms and Carrfour Supportive Housing I’m right where I need to be.
