Best Practices Manual: Integrating Property Management and Services in Supportive Housing
In November 2008, Coalition Homes and Corporation for Supportive Housing brought together 70 leaders involved in supportive housing for a Forum discussing strengthening the integration of property management. Those attending included program directors, funders, asset managers, property managers, and housing specialists. Many worked with the homeless in Montgomery County, Maryland, but several nearby jurisdictions were also represented. Participants left the Forum with a keener sense that the two disciplines had much to learn about each other, and that the topic of a blended approach was worthy of further exploration. This Best Practices Manual is inspired and informed by presentations and discussions at that conference, and also by a survey of several dozen leaders performed before the forum.
