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

Rating: 5 stars  

Specialized Alternatives for Families & Youth (SAFY), a therapeutic foster care and adoption agency operating in Indiana and in eight (8) states, just completed training with the Indiana Supportive Housing Institute. The leadership of the Institute team was an awesome demonstration of the kind of well organized, indepth and comprehensive information needed to lay a proper foundation for a thoughtful, inspired and quality project that would not have been possible otherwise. Because of the consistent amd persistent guidance of the Institute team, challenging us to move beyond our comfort zone, the SAFY "Vision" to provide permanent supportive housing to the aging out foster youth population will become a reality. Thank you for your commitment to this poplulation of foster youth who, without strategic and timely intervention, are at risk of homelessness, vlunerable to profound and persistent discouragement and disallusionment. The Institute's leadership assisted us in letting go of our own fears, "stepping up" for our youth who are looking to us to get it right at a time when getting it right really matters. Finally, the Indiana Supportive Housing Institute is what leaving a legacy is all about.....“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." (Margaret Mead)

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

the expansion of my leadership ability in the area of premanent supportive housing.

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

not change a thing!

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Participated in the Supportive Housing Institute to learn how to leverage HUD and tax credit dollars in order to provide permanent supportive housing for the aging out foster youth population. .
