I need housing but also supportive social services such as counseling, health care, or job training.

While a roof over one’s head is very important, many people experiencing homelessness benefit from supportive social services, too. Permanent supportive housing, transitional housing, and rapid re-housing all offer social services alongside temporary or long-term housing. These subsidized housing options can help break the cycle of homelessness by providing stable, affordable homes for those in need.

NOTE: The list below is temporary and permanent supportive housing options in the community. See this page for a list of for Coordinated Entry agencies providing access to homeless support services.
