How Does Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Work?

Empowering homeless persons to live as independently as possible.

What Is Permanent Supportive Housing

Penny Lane Centers’ Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) program provides housing and supportive housing services to formerly homeless individuals to maintain stable housing.  Participants are referred through the Coordinated Entry System (CES) and then matched to one of the buildings that are operated by Penny Lane Center’s Property Development Company, Abbey Road and/or other community development agencies. The apartment buildings are project based vouchers (PBV), with the rent subsidized by Federal Department Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

Going Beyond Permanent Supportive Housing:

  • Assist the PSH applicant in ensuring that they meet the income restriction and completing the HUD application and getting approval.
  • Once approved and moved-in, Case Management will assess the needs of the new tenant, and provide in house and outreach services that fit the individual needs required.
  • Case Management will provide linkages to the individual for mental and physical health services, dental and optometry services and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment.
  • Services’ goal is to assist in the individual in becoming part of the building and outside community, and making their unit a home.
