Implementing Housing First in Permanent Supportive Housing
The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH), with assistance from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, has published a new fact sheet to help service providers understand how Housing First can fit into a permanent supportive housing framework.
Permanent supportive housing and Housing First should be thought of as two complementary tools for ending chronic homelessness and helping people with disabilities live independently in a community. Permanent supportive housing is a successful and proven programmatic and housing intervention, while Housing First is a framework that can and should be used with permanent supportive housing, as well as with other program models and as a community-wide framework for ending homelessness.
