Supportive housing is a term used to describe a successful, cost-effective combination of affordable housing and support services to help people live more stable and productive lives. Typically, once a person finds safe, affordable housing they become more socially involved in their community and their health stabilizes or improves. Providence offers supportive housing in the communities we serve.
