CSH PHA Toolkit
The Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) has released a new resource for Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and other stakeholders interested in creating supportive housing and ending homelessness in their communities. Supportive Housing: An Intervention for Ending Homelessness provides specific strategies and concrete examples of the roles PHAs can play in their communities to create supportive housing and end homelessness.
This toolkit provides PHA staffs and other stakeholders with the knowledge and know-how to put together a key piece of the puzzle to ending homelessness—supportive housing, an innovative and proven solution to some of communities’ toughest problems. Supportive Housing combines affordable housing with services that help people who face the most complex challenges to live with stability, autonomy and dignity. Supportive housing is best utilized when targeted for the subset of people experiencing homelessness who most need it—individuals and families with histories of homelessness, chronic health conditions (including mental illness and substance use) and costly public system utilization.
