CSH released a new, first-of-its-kind national needs assessment of supportive housing, which was developed by looking at data across a spectrum of public systems and found that an estimated 1,125,000 homes are needed to meet the need for supportive housing.
From the Summary: “Supportive housing is affordable housing with flexible services that help vulnerable people access and maintain the housing and community supports needed to live independent and dignified lives. … It is a subset of the much larger affordable and private housing markets, and represents a small but critical portion of housing and services needs nationally. Supportive housing uses a holistic approach to bridge these gaps and make communities, stronger, safer, and healthier, often reducing public costs and improving the quality of life.”
The report includes an interactive map with data by state.
