What is Supportive Housing?

Supportive housing is a proven solution that combines affordable housing with individualized services that help people with the most complex challenges live with stability, autonomy and dignity. It reduces homelessness and avoids the unnecessary institutionalization of people with disabilities.


Supportive Housing increases housing security, jobs, mental and physical wellbeing, and school attendance; and decreases the use of substances. People living in affordable housing are living more secure and productive lives.


Supportive Housing costs 30% less than keeping people homeless and stuck in the revolving door of high-cost crisis care and emergency housing.



Supportive Housing helps create solid, stable neighborhoods by improving community security, enhancing new or rehabilitated properties and increasing or stabilizing property values over time.


Supportive Housing can help families stay together. Providing family with the services they need to stay together, we can protect children who might be at risk for abuse and neglect.
