The best solution for many people who have been devastated by the experience of long-term homelessness is permanent supportive housing.
SRO (Single Room Occupancy) Housing is already providing permanent supportive housing, strong management, and crucial services that address underlying issues faced by those who are experiencing chronic homelessness. However, this is not the best solution for everyone. Despite what many believe, only 10%-20% of those experiencing homelessness are in a position where long-term supportive housing is their best option. The majority of individuals are capable of integrating back into society with the appropriate programs, services, and support they need. But we need more to focus on this initiative.
