What is Permanent Supportive Housing?

Permanent Supportive Housing, or PSH, is a long term program that combines affordable housing with services that help people who face the most complex challenges to live with stability, independence and dignity.

Our community prioritizes PSH for those with the most severe medical, mental health, behavioral health or substance use conditions and who have been living on the streets or emergency shelters the longest.

Permanent Supportive Housing improves the lives of our community’s most vulnerable citizens by supporting their housing stability and overall wellness.

Permanent Supportive Housing has also been proven to be a cost-effective solution to ending homelessness, as participants enrolled in the program have less interaction with high-cost crisis systems, such as jails and hospitals.
