Permanent Supportive Housing (formerly known as Shelter Plus Care–S+C): Goals of the Permanent Supportive Housing program are to assist homeless individuals and their families in order to increase their housing stability, skills and/or income, and self-sufficiency.
The program provides permanent housing in connection with supportive services to homeless people with disabilities and their families. It also provides rental assistance for a variety of housing choices, accompanied by a range of supportive services funded by other sources. The program is designed to serve a population who has been traditionally hard to reach: homeless individuals with disabilities such as, but not limited to, serious mental illness, chronic substance abuse, and/or AIDS and related diseases. The program was built on the premise that housing and services need to be connected in order to ensure the stability of housing for this population. Supported Housing Application Packet
