For 18 years, CHI has offered permanent supportive housing which stabilizes homeless individuals and families by providing affordable housing with appropriate supportive services. CHI provides supportive housing to 30 families and 55 singles with special needs, such as people experiencing mental illness, alcohol and/or substance abuse, and developmental disabilities, among others.
The goal is to link safe and affordable housing with voluntary support services designed to help the individual or family stay housed and live a more productive life in the community. There is no time limitation so people living in supportive housing do not have the added stress of housing searches or the fear of loss of home hanging over their heads.
Instead, CHI clients in supportive housing have a private and secure place to make their home, while accessing voluntary services designed to better their lives, including assistance with integrating into the community, and connections to community-based health care, treatment and employment services.
