Mark April 30 - May 2 on your calendar now! CSH Supportive Housing Summit 2019 will activate cross-sector cooperation, collaboration and partnerships, connecting the dots with supportive housing. CSH and leaders from many professional fields important to supportive housing, including healthcare, education, child welfare, workforce development, IDD, justice reform, addiction, community planning and others will gather at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, IN. Registration will open soon.
CSH selected three community providers to advance Pay for Success initiatives that deliver stable housing and improved medical and mental healthcare to people unhoused or leaving institutions who frequently use costly crisis services. "These grants, coupled with CSH technical assistance, set the stage to explore how communities can create more supportive housing by leveraging Pay for Success financing and contracting, using the private and philanthropic dollars that come with it," said Deborah De Santis, President and CEO of CSH.
