What is the Permanent Supportive Housing Program?

Permanent Supportive Housing provides rent assistance, in connection with supportive services, to homeless persons with disabilities. The program is a collaborative effort with Northland Counseling Center. The supportive services provided by staff from Northland Counseling Center fulfill a dollar-for-dollar match requirement for the HUD grant.


The HRA assists approximately 15 participants through this program.
