Permanent supportive housing is a long-term solution to chronic homelessness that provides affordable, sustainable housing with access to supportive services.
Chronic homelessness means being without a place of your own for a year or more or experiencing homelessness four times in the last three years. When renting it is often required to have a deposit and first month of rent up front. Without recorded history of your living situation for the last year and while already paying for medical bills or needs, this is especially difficult and keeps people out of safe housing.
Permanent supportive housing is a long-term solution for people experiencing chronically homeless to provide affordable and sustainable housing with access to supportive services. When a person is housed, they are paired with a case manager to build an individualized plan for the support they need. It makes both economic as well as human dignity sense.
