Introduction to Systems Change
CSH collaborates with communities to initiate and implement public policy changes that strengthen the integration and coordination of the housing, corrections, mental health and other public service systems.
System change is an evolving, iterative process that can take years, but CSH is expert at coordinating change on a faster timeline. We know that to best serve the men, women and families in most need, there must be a high degree of integration among service providers, property owners and managers, and the array of public agencies that fund these projects.
CSH developed a number of strategies to achieve systems change that have proven very effective.
- Inspiring commitment to supportive housing
- Building agency and provider capacity to create supportive housing
- Organizing and sharing information and research
- Making major investments in communities poised for change
CSH's FUSE program is an especially important part of our systems change models.
