Corporation for Supportive Housing of Southern New England
The Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) is a national, nonprofit organization that helps communities create permanent housing with services to prevent and end homelessness. CSH advances its mission by providing high-quality advice and development expertise, by making loans and grants to supportive housing sponsors, by strengthening the supportive housing industry, and by reforming public policy to make it easier to create and operate supportive housing. CSH delivers its core services primarily through six geographic hubs: California, Great Lakes (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio), Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, and Southern New England (Connecticut, Rhode Island). CSH also operates targeted initiatives in Kentucky, Maine, Oregon, and Washington, and reaches many other communities that request assistance through its National Program staff.
CSH’s Southern New England service area covers the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island. The program has served Connecticut since 1993 and Rhode Island since 2003. Our central office is located in New Haven, Connecticut. We currently assist over 70 nonprofits and 10 government agencies. Current key initiatives include the Supportive Housing Pilots Initiative, a State-led program financing the creation of close to 700 units of supportive housing; the Next Steps Initiative, a new effort to expand supportive housing for families, adults and young adults by 1,000 units over the next four years; One Step Beyond, the nation’s first supportive housing development institute; and programs to facilitate peer learning between providers of supportive housing.
