Innovate, measure and evaluate smart solutions
CSH develops and evaluates new models and demonstration programs that uncover innovative, data-driven methods to make supportive housing work better for more people — especially the highest-cost, highest-need people. We measure outcomes and evaluate impact so our work (and the industry’s best practices) are grounded in research.
Engage and influence policy and decision makers
CSH builds relationships within federal, state and local governments to increase understanding and backing of supportive housing. We advocate for comprehensive policy and programs that help
very vulnerable people receive the coordinated services they need.
Reform and improve government systems
CSH transforms how public agencies tackle complex and costly problems by coordinating targeted
supportive housing solutions. We work with communities to shift public resources in a way that
lightens the burden on systems, reduces public costs and improves outcomes for the people most in
Fund new projects and programs
CSH infuses projects and initiatives that include supportive housing with funding that drives
expansion and progress. Our financial support ensures a diverse set of supportive housing options
and encourages the use of cutting-edge financing models and architectural design.
Educate and empower industry players
CSH’s best practices, tools and trainings build the capacity of the industry. With our Dimensions Quality leading the way, we help ensure that more communities are able to create and operate high-quality supportive housing.
Lead and expand the supportive housing industry
CSH is leading the supportive housing industry into a strong and sustainable future. We shape the
national supportive housing agenda and encourage growth in our field by making connections
between supportive housing and the issues that matter to people, governments and communities
