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

Rating: 5 stars  

Recently we had the priveledge to attend the CSH Housing Institute in Illinois. As a property developer and manager we have experience with low income housing but we are working to expand into housing for our homeless veterans. The training we received showed us that even though we thought ourselves to be somewhat knowlegeable and experienced, we had so much to learn about housing and caring for people who are chronically homeless. Our team partner, a service provider of over 100 years history found they also had much to learn about this difficult, but not impossible task. The staff of CSH is the most knowledgable, professional and compassionate group of trainers and advocates for the ending of homelessness in our country. We appreciated the vast resources they shared with us, and will continue to utilize them for the many years to come as a provider of housing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Already the CSH institute has helped us by involving our local Housing Authority in our final presentation and helping them decide to provide project based rental assistance to our development

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
