Permanent Supportive Housing is an evidence-based practice that combines housing with services to support people moving out of homelessness and through their recovery journeys. Join us for a free SAMHSA webinar to learn more about the core elements of Permanent Supportive Housing and how you can use SAMHSA’s Permanent Supportive Housing Evidence-Based Practices KIT to support your community’s efforts to end homelessness.
Presenters Ann Denton, and Joseph Tardella, with an introduction by Fran Randolph, will provide an overview of the core elements of the Permanent Supportive Housing model and a general orientation to the SAMHSA Permanent Supportive Housing Evidence-Based Practices KIT. They will share lessons learned from the process of implementing Permanent Supportive Housing in Detroit, Michigan by Southwest Counseling Solutions. This is the first of a series of four webinars on SAMHSA’s Permanent Supportive Housing Evidence-Based Practices KIT.
