Permanent Supportive Housing

Approximately 50% of all women who are homeless report that domestic violence was the immediate cause of their homelessness.

Our Permanent Supportive Housing Program provides safe, affordable housing, counseling, and supportive services for survivors and their children. Each family can stay as long as they need, pay below-market rent, and benefit from comprehensive on-site supportive services and referrals to other community service providers. The 37-unit apartment building can accommodate up to 37 parents and their children at any one time.

Permanent Supportive Housing is designed to:

  • Accommodate adults with or without children with only one family per unit
  • Offer each family control over their living conditions
  • Offer safety and security in a well-maintained building
  • Accommodate on-site counseling

Our goal for each family in the Permanent Supportive Housing Program is that within two years they will amass the resources and skills they need — education, employment, financial management, parenting, and personal development — to secure and maintain permanent housing and live independent, violence-free lives.

The Program does not discriminate against any applicant on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, age, familial status, ancestry, unfavorable military discharge, marital status, receipt of governmental assistance, or handicap.

The Program does not discriminate on the basis of handicapped status in the admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its federally assisted programs and activities.
