Report: Success in Targeting High-Need Families for Supportive Housing

17 August 2011

A new report finds that after entering supportive housing, families enjoyed immediate benefits including fewer issues with child care, finances and employment. "No Place Like Home: Housing San Francisco’s Chronically Homeless Families," produced by the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) and Harder+Company Community Research, found that high-need families targeted for supportive housing had long histories of homelessness, low levels of employment and income, higher rates of criminal justice and child welfare involvement, substance abuse issues, and poor health.

The report studies the work of CSH and the San Francisco Human Services Agency, who target the City’s most vulnerable families for permanent supportive housing with operating subsidies from the City-funded Local Operating Subsidy Program.
