Starting in 2007, the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) awarded Services in Supportive Housing (SSH) funds to fourteen grantees nationwide to provide intensive services to prevent or reduce chronic homelessness. In 2009, the SSH program received an additional $16 million to fund forty-three additional grantees. The exponential reach of this expansion promises to enhance the lives of many more individuals and families experiencing chronic homelessness. As the program moves forward, it will continue to build on the experience gained since 2007.

The SSH Annual Report found below describes the SSH program and its activities through the end of September 2009. Program outcomes to date indicate that SAMHSA’s requirement that SSH grantees use evidence-based practices in the delivery of services is an effective strategy that merits incorporation into future initiatives. SSH program outcomes to date also indicate that providing services to people in permanent housing is an effective strategy to prevent and reduce chronic homelessness.
