Community Supportive Housing Services

Individuals and families who have been homeless need more than just a home. They often need support to ensure they remain in stable housing. We serve nearly 300 people living in supportive housing in Connecticut, including homeless Veterans, who are disabled due to mental illness and/or substance abuse. We’re working to develop and operate our own supportive housing sites to help more of the homeless population.

We help people who are homeless and struggle with mental illness, substance abuse or HIV/AIDS to:

  • Find, obtain and maintain permanent affordable housing
  • Complete applications to get a housing subsidy
  • Understand an apartment lease and how to be a good tenant
  • Acquire furnishings
  • Access job training and education
  • Gain employment
  • Manage physical and mental healthcare
  • Learn daily living skills such as housekeeping, shopping on a budget, using public transportation and managing finances
  • Complete applications for entitlement benefits
  • Connect to community resources such as houses of worship and support groups
