Review for Corporation For Supportive Housing, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

An amazing and unusual organization that has helped end homelessness for tens of thousands of people who have lived in the streets and shelters literally for decades. They are the 'venture capital' for the field - providing grants and loans to nonprofits around the country that develop housing affordable to the poorest people. They have been a huge factor in the advocacy, education and policy work at the local, state, and federal levels, and the partnerships with banks and other low income housing tax credit investors, delivering the data on cost effectiveness and results that has resulted in billions of dollars of investment, and reduced taxpayer costs for what would otherwise be used by homeless people as a revolving door of shelters, hospital emergency rooms and jails.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I worked there in the late 1990's and early 2000's.
