North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

Downtown Emergency Service Center Supportive Housing

DESC's supportive housing is predicated on the concept of "housing first."  The housing first approach is based on a simple premise: people are more likely to be successful in treatment when they have a stable home.  A safe, affordable place to live should be the first thing we provide.  One of the most visible implementations of housing first in the country is DESC's newest supportive housing development, 1811 Eastlake.
 
1811 Eastlake is the first housing program of its kind in Washington to address the needs of chronic homeless alcoholics.
