Permanent Supportive Housing

Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) is another new program that began in fall of 2018. PSH is for individuals and households who have persistently experienced homelessness and where other housing interventions have not been successful. When clients are enrolled in PSH, they sign into a standard lease for their own rental and have no time limit on when they need to move out. They pay a lower percentage of their income towards rent and receive intensive one-on-one case management to help them meet their goals and address any remaining barriers while they work towards self-sufficiency and self-reliance.

Services Offered to PSH Participants

Regardless of the barriers the client may have faced in the past, our Permanent Supportive Housing Case Manager meets individually with each client to assess what needs they may have while working towards housing stability. Their case manager assists the clients with resources and referrals, as needed, which may include vocational, and employment services, mental and physical health services and financial management assistance, as well as general advocacy and support. Our primary goal is to assist households in PSH maintain their housing and meet any current and future housing goals.
