Success with Chronically Homeless Families

No Place Like Home: Housing San Francisco’s
Chronically Homeless Families

No Place Like Home: Housing San Francisco’s Chronically Homeless FamiliesThe Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) and Harder+Company Community Research have released a new report, “No Place Like Home: Housing San Francisco’s Chronically Homeless Families.”

The report finds that after entering supportive housing, the families’ quality of life improved by fewer issues with child care, finances and employment. High need families targeted for supportive housing had long histories of homelessness, low levels of employment and income, higher rates of criminal behavior and experience with the child welfare system.

The research is based on the joint work of CSH and the San Francisco Human Services Agency, who target the City’s most vulnerable families for permanent supportive housing with operating subsidies from the City-funded Local Operating Subsidy Program.
