Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) provides rental assistance for homeless residents with disabilities, in connection with supportive services funded from sources outside the program.
The PSH Program is designed to provide housing and supportive services on a long-term basis for homeless residents with disabilities, (primarily serious mental illness, chronic problems with alcohol and/or drugs, AIDS or related diseases) and their families who are living in emergency shelters or in places not intended for human habitation (e.g., streets).
The program allows for a variety of housing choices, and it offers a a range of supportive services for the hard-to reach homeless population with disabilities. Other federal, state, or local sources, as well as private sources, may fund the supportive services. The CPHD has been funded seven vouchers over a five-year period to provide this service.
