Permanent Supportive Housing

North Park Residence

San Diego Housing Commission Permanent Supportive Housing projects are targeted to individuals who are experiencing chronic homelessness or literal homelessness as prioritized by the region’s Coordinated Entry System (CES) and who need both rental assistance and supportive services for an indefinite period to remain housed. People experiencing chronic homelessness are prioritized for permanent supportive housing because they have the highest level of service needs. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) defines chronic homelessness as being literally homeless with a documented disability and having experienced homelessness for 12 consecutive months or on multiple occasions totaling 12 months in the last three years broken up by periods of at least seven nights in a place meant for human habitation.
