The Supportive Housing Network of New York

The Supportive Housing Network of New York (the Network) represents more than 200 nonprofit organizations that have created over 55,000 units of supportive housing across New York State. The Network uses advocacy, public education, training, technical assistance, research, and policy analysis to increase the public's understanding of supportive housing – affordable housing with voluntary services for formerly homeless people with disabilities and special needs. The Network identifies and shares best practices that continually improve the model’s effectiveness and, most importantly, encourages the creation of enough supportive housing to end homelessness among the most vulnerable New Yorkers. Currently, our members are adding thousands of units of supportive housing per year under two historic initiatives: the State’s Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI), creating 20,000 units, and the City’s NYC 15/15, creating 15,000 units, both over fifteen years.
