Every neighborhood includes family and community members who need extra help – briefly or permanently – to stay stable and live a resilient life. CHW sets aside supportive housing apartments with the essential social services to support these residents.
Permanent supportive housing residents may come from homelessness or have a destabilizing disability, such as mental illness, a substance abuse disorder, or veteran post-traumatic stress disorder. Other supportive housing benefits domestic violence families, developmentally disabled adults, at-risk young mothers, or transition-age youth leaving the foster care system.
Since 1989, Community HousingWorks has been providing supportive and permanent supportive housing for homeless and disabled residents, with services provided by local service partners.
