The Road to Ending Homelessness: Detroit in Driver's Seat

Last month, CSH joined with the City of Detroit and the Detroit Continuum of Care in celebrating a continued and steady decline in the number of people in the Motor City experiencing homelessness, noting a 15% drop in 2017 over the previous year including a 4% drop among homeless veterans. The City and CSH credit the reduction to the “Housing First” approach to homelessness, which relies on the supportive housing model with wraparound services to ensure success for those in need of stability. With technical assistance provided in part by CSH, Detroit added 143 permanent supportive housing units in 2017 and expects to add another 300 over the next five years.
