Mission: To advance solutions that use housing as a platform for services to improve the lives of the most vulnerable people, maximize public resources and build healthy communities.
Results: For 25 years, CSH has been the leader of the supportive housing movement. We've demonstrated supportive housing’s enormous potential for improving the lives of very vulnerable individuals and families. We've helped local providers create more access to supportive housing's combination of affordable housing and support services. We've provided loans, grants, project assistance and advocacy creating access to 200,000 homes for those who need housing and important services to achieve stability and transform their lives. We’re worked in nearly 40 states, 225 communities, across three regions of the country. We’ve made over $500 million in loans and grants. We’ve presented nearly 1000 training events in the past four years, many through our Supportive Housing Training Center. We've helped communities create supportive housing through federal, state and local public policy reforms.
Target demographics: CSH works to create supportive housing to change the trajectory of lives, offering vulnerable individuals and families the homes, healthcare and hope they need to move forward.

CSH has taught me so much during the institue. For the last ten years, I've wanted to provide a home for women and children that have been in domestic violence situations. I didn't know where to start. But, thank God for CSH, now I'm developing a 25 unit supportive housing complex for domestic violence. They at CSH have taken each group step by step through the development process, steps to acquiring funds, and actual building of each project. I feel very comfortable in taking on this project now, because I know CSH will be there for me when I have questions,and I know they will be there for me until the project is done. I'm so lucky to be a part of the institute
