There are over 500,000 people with disabilities in Texas. For every person with a disability, there are at least 3 people who have a vital interest in their health and safety. That's 2 million people who could benefit from our services in Texas alone. People with special needs want to live independently and affordably, and we need your help.

About COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING (CPSH)
4500 ARLEN DR, PLANO, TX 75093, US
Community for Permanent Supported Housing advocates, educates, and collaborates to transform the lives of residents with disabilities in Texas by creating access to community-based, safe, affordable housing options, and support services.
COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING provides the guidance and support to families so that their loved ones with disabilities have a safe affordable roof over their heads as their parents age.
Today’s housing crisis made worse by COVID-19 highlight the lack of affordable housing for workforce families, and individuals that are homeless people with disabilities are being overlooked. They are the potential homeless. Community resources to help a family situate their adult child so he can thrive on his own are difficult to identify. Figuring out how that adult child can thrive on his own is difficult to identify. Figuring out how that adult child can survive on disability income (usually $783 per month) is challenging.
When an individual or a family contacts COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING, it is often in crisis. For whatever reason, the person with disabilities can no longer remain in the family home. COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING provides a rapid response. We engage in immediate one-to-one support, taking time to hear the issues and formulate a plan. To date, we have been able to provide this assistance with a minimal operating budget and the generosity of volunteers. There is more demand for our support. We look to volunteers to create a strong infrastructure for us to be as helpful to our community as possible.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
