Permanent Supportive Housing

About the Program

Our Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) program uses a “Housing First” approach to meet the needs of chronically homeless individuals and their families at scattered site locations throughout Fort Worth and Arlington. This program pairs affordable housing with trauma-informed intensive case management and wraparound supportive services to maximize housing stability and prevent returns to homelessness. Its goal is to help participants obtain and remain in permanent housing, increase their skills and/or income, and achieve greater self-determination.

As a partner of the Tarrant County Homeless Coalition Continuum of Care, the Council has been dedicated to addressing the multifaceted issues of substance use, mental health disorders, and homelessness since 2007. Our capacity has doubled since the program’s inception to now serve over 170 clients annually, fostering hope and stability in our community.

Case Management

Case managers assist clients with increasing income, accessing educational opportunities, learning life skills, accessing health care, and obtaining various mainstream benefits. Our client-centered and client-driven case management approach empowers individuals. Case managers work collaboratively with clients to set mutually agreed-upon goals and objectives monthly, fostering self-sufficiency.

Clients pay a maximum of 30% of their income for rent with flexible lease terms. We welcome all individuals without discrimination based on background, history, or identity. Our program supports historically underserved individuals, aiming to address barriers hindering their success.
