What are the basic housing options?

  • Assisted Living Facilities – state licensed facilities providing supervision or assistance with daily living, coordination of health services, rehabilitation, symptom management monitoring of residents to help ensure their health, safety, and well being of people with disabilities.
  • Supported Housing provides in home supports necessary to meet individually identified needs. This can range from a person checking on someone daily to having around the clock companions.
  • Transitional Housing is intended to bridge individuals from homelessness to permanent housing with subsidies for less than 24 months.  The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) may provide supportive services for childcare, job training, and home furnishings as well as rental subsidies
  • Permanent Housing is defined by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as long-term housing with supportive services for homeless persons with disabilities. This type of supportive housing enables special needs populations to live as independently as possible in a permanent setting.
