Moving On Profile: Hartford, CT

In February of 2009, with technical assistance and support from CSH, the Hartford based non-profit organization Journey Home surveyed 7 supportive housing programs throughout the Capitol Region to determine if supportive housing programs were housing tenants who were ready and willing to move to more independent housing in the community. The survey revealed there were 102 supportive housing tenants potentially interested in “moving on” from the supportive housing they were living in to a more independent living arrangement in the community.

Armed with this information and with best practice examples provided by CSH, Journey Home designed and implemented a Moving On initiative that succeeded in moving forty supportive housing tenants on from the Hartford supportive housing portfolio to an affordable apartment of their own in Hartford, thereby making 40 supportive housing units available to long term homeless individuals.
