What is often referred to as the "invisible population," (homeless and formerly homeless elders age 50 and older), can no longer be overshadowed or overlooked. The population has grown significantly, nearly half all single homeless adults are over age 50. Supportive housing, is also experiencing a "graying" tenant population that calls for changes to the way that quality supportive housing is delivered. CSH provides the tools and solutions to promote healthy aging in supportive housing.
