Corporation for Supportive Housing Integrates Housing and Supportive Services for Vulnerable Populations

Abstract: Supportive housing, which was begun by visionary nonprofits in New York City in the early 1980s to serve long-term homeless people, offers vulnerable individuals and families their own affordable homes as well as access to a comprehensive array of flexible services, paving the way for successful tenancy, recovery, and community integration. Supportive housing is also being provided for other populations, such as those with mental illness backgrounds or with developmental disabilities.
