New Community Platform: COVID Resources & Best Practices for Supportive Housing
The latest info & resources for you, your staff and your residents
CSH COVID-19 Supportive Housing Community Platform
A Forum for Supportive Housing Providers to Access Resources and Join a Community of Your Peers
The supportive housing field always steps up to serve our communities - every day and certainly in times of crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic. We at CSH know supportive housing providers are doing their best to balance keeping staff and residents safe and healthy while serving the community at large, acquiring critical resources and keeping your agency fiscally sustainable and focused on mission, all while keeping up on the latest information and guidance.
We in supportive housing industry are well aware the burden is likely to hit people experiencing homelessness, communities of color, and the people we serve harder than most. We also know that to balance the competing priorities, leaders around the country are creating planning and operational tools like policies and protocols and data tracking mechanisms while also responding to the quickly changing landscape as this crisis evolves. CSH has created a mechanism to make sharing these tools and communicating between leaders in our field easier.
To support you in this constantly changing time, CSH established a community platform where you can:
access CSH authored and sourced materials;
share materials and resources you feel would benefit the supportive housing community;
learn from examples of others in the field;
download sample materials that can be adapted for your agency; and
post questions to your colleagues.
We know your time is especially precious now and our goal is to help you so you do not have to start from scratch and can build on the knowledge from the field. There is no cost to our partners to join this platform.
If you want to post materials to share, you can post directly or email CSH at CSHCOVIDInfo@csh.org. CSH will be monitoring the site regularly to curate the material, so only a few examples on each topic will remain posted as the materials can quickly become overwhelming. We thank you in advance for sharing your great work with the field.
You will need to create an account to log into the site. If you already have a user account with the CSH Supportive Housing Training Center, you can use your existing login.
When sharing materials, please be sure they are branded to reflect your agency and we suggest adding a liability disclaimer such as:
" 'AGENCY NAME' makes no guarantee with regard to the accuracy, completeness or suitability of any document, and they assume no responsibility or liability in connection with the use or misuse of any material."
Please visit the site regularly, to gather resources and the latest guidance to support your team.
And as always if you have additional recommendations on how CSH can do more to assist your agency, please reach out via CSHCovidInfo@csh.org.
