Supported Housing

A Transition to Independence

Supportive housing benefits people who have successfully transitioned from a more structured setting, but are not quite ready to live completely independently. These options provide a transitional step in the person's journey of recovery and return to independent living.

Supported Housing Program

  • Clustered apartments, usually in a single building
  • Independent living, supplemented with the assistance of a support team, generally 2 hours or more a week, as needed
  • HUD funding is commonly included, requiring a history of homelessness

Supported Independent Living

  • Independent living, supplemented with the assistance of a support team, generally 2 hours or more a week, as needed
  • Apartments are commonly scattered throughout the city
  • Upon successful participation in this residential program, the support team is withdrawn, and people remain in the apartment.
