Permanent Supportive Housing
Permanent Supportive housing is available for individuals and families who are ready to live independently but may still need an extra hand from time to time. Social Services are available on site to provide crisis intervention, help negotiate delivery of services by mainstream providers, and help individuals and families access more specialized services from community providers. We currently have over 350 units of permanent supportive housing. Our Supportive Housing units are found at the following locations:
