PFS Ingredients for Success

Recognizing CSH as a leader in our field, the Corporation for National and Community Service awarded us funding from 2014 – 2018 to partner with twelve organizations across the country to explore the feasibility of Pay for Success (PFS) to scale supportive housing. These nonprofits and governments leveraged our expertise and resources, and focused their efforts on designing and implementing supportive housing to improve the lives of:

  • Residents of health care institutions who prefer to live in the community
  • Super utilizers of health care or other crisis resources
  • Individuals experiencing chronic homelessness in recovery from substance use.
  • Families with high utilization of the child welfare systems and histories of housing instability
  • Young adults who are homeless, in foster care, and/or in the juvenile justice system

The twelve feasibility explorations resulted in an increased understanding of the following:

  • Key Local Factors for Successful Pay for Success Initiatives
  • Status Quo Costs of Supportive Housing Target Populations
  • Benefits of Pay for Success and Supportive Housing
