ADVOCACY

Florida Supportive Housing Coalition’s (FSHC) main mission is advocating to increase affordable housing and housing support services for persons with special needs and experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. We envision a Florida where persons with special needs can live, work, and prosper in their community of choice with the supports they need.

By working together with our corporate and statewide partner members, our organizational members, our local government members, and our individual stakeholders, FSHC has built an organization dedicated to fostering the development of supportive housing for persons with special needs.  Special needs Individuals include elders, veterans, young people exiting foster care, persons with disabilities.  This includes persons with mental illnesses, substance abuse disorders, HIV/Aids, and persons experiencing domestic violence.

Our advocacy activities include an annual shared legislative platform to increase the funding for special needs and homeless housing, and housing for persons with extremely low incomes. Our legislative priorities also include funding requests for housing support services and rental assistance.

All FSHC members receive a copy of our legislative priorities, weekly legislative updates throughout the legislative session, action alerts, and end of session analyses of the budget and passed bills.

2021 Legislative Capital News reports will be made available to FSHC
Members beginning November 2020.
