Permanent Supportive Housing

The Situation in Maricopa County

Nearly 6,300 people experience homelessness each night.

  • Chronic homelessness means being without a place of your own for a year or more or experiencing homelessness four times in the last three years.
  • When renting it is often required to have a deposit and first month of rent up front. Without recorded history of your living situation for the last year and while already paying for medical bills or needs, this is especially difficult and keeps people out of safe housing.


The Solution: Permanent Supportive Housing

Permanent supportive housing is a long-term solution for people experiencing chronically homeless to provide affordable and sustainable housing with access to supportive services. When a person is housed, they are paired with a case manager to build an individualized plan for the support they need. It makes both economic as well as human dignity sense.

This Community Saves $28,000/Person Each Year with Permanent Supportive Housing

  • 1 person experiencing chronic homelessness = $40,000/year
  • 1 person in permanent supportive housing = $12,000/year



“Every part of the program, every part of supportive housing is designed to help you succeed.”
– Tonie, Previous Permanent Supportive Housing Resident, who is now living on her own
