Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.

I found CPSH about 4 years ago through VolunteerMatch when I was looking to use my skillset to make a difference. As soon as I spoke with the Board, I felt at home. I have been able to work remotely and whenever I can fit in time, which is a huge since I also work full-time and have young children. All of the volunteers are very kind and passionate about the mission. I am so blessed to be a part of this organization to help adults with IDD.
