Permanent supportive housing is a successful, cost-effective combination of affordable housing with services that helps people live more stable, productive lives. 

Supportive housing is:

  • available to, and intended for, a person or family who  is homeless, or at-risk of homelessness, and has multiple barriers to employment and housing stability, which might include mental illness, chemical dependency, and/or other disabling or chronic health conditions;
  • affordable to extremely low income families or individuals;
  • accessible to flexible and comprehensive array of supportive services designed to assist the tenants to achieve and sustain housing stability including substance use, relapse, and mental health crises, with a focus on fostering housing stability.

Sacramento’s plan for delivery of permanent supportive housing is contained within the Sacramento Steps Forward’s 10 Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness. Learn more about the plan at http://sacramentostepsforward.com/

SHRA is committed to end homelessness and supports the 10 Year Plan by financing and developing Permanent Supportive Housing for Sacramento County’s disabled, extremely low income residents.  For more information on resources to develop supportive housing, click here to learn about Multifamily Lending programs.
