Family Supportive Housing is a program administered by the Vermont Office of Economic Opportunity to help reduce the incidence and duration of homelessness for families with children as they transition to maintaining stable and permanent housing.
This is accomplished through intensive case management/service coordination that addresses the root causes of homelessness, promotes resiliency for parents and children, while helping these households build financial stability. The Haven is one of several providers of Family Supportive Housing in the state of Vermont.
Supportive housing combines affordable housing assistance with supportive services for people experiencing homelessness.
According to the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness “Studies have shown that supportive housing not only resolves homelessness and increases housing stability, but also improves health and lowers public costs by reducing the use of publicly-funded crisis services, including shelters, hospitals, psychiatric centers, jails, and prisons.”
