Texas Supportive Housing Institute

TSAHC has partnered with the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) to launch the Texas Supportive Housing Institute to provide technical assistance to developers, service providers and property managers interested in creating and operating supportive housing in their communities.

 


About the Texas Supportive Housing Institute

The Texas Supportive Housing Institute provides a forum for effective team building among project managers, direct service providers, and property management staff. Teams will receive information, resources and tools to create successful permanent supportive housing projects, to move people out of long-term homelessness, and to help formerly homeless tenants remain stably housed.

2021 Institute Teams

For 2021, we elected to select Full Participants and Limited Participants for the Institute. Full Participants are development teams that are fully formed and ready to implement PSH in their communities. In addition to participating in the Institute sessions, these teams will receive up to 25 hours of individual technical assistance and follow up grants to help launch their PSH projects. Limited Participants are teams that have demonstrated an interest in developing PSH in their communities and will attend sessions to learn more about PSH concepts to help them implement their vision in the future.

We’re proud to announce the following teams have been selected to participate in the 2021 Institute as Full Participants:

The Coalition for the Homeless Houston / Harris County, NHP Foundation and Magnificat Houses (Houston, TX)

This team is led by the Coalition for the Homeless Houston / Harris County in partnership with the NHP Foundation (nonprofit housing developer), Maginficat Houses (service provider), and Allied Orion Group (property management). They intend to build a 149-unit integrated development with 119 units set aside as PSH units for individuals who are experiencing chronic homelessness or those who are at-risk of becoming homeless. 

Project Vida (El Paso, TX)

From El Paso, TX, Project Vida is a non-profit organization with the goal of providing their community with the structures and programs needed to achieve community-wide goals. Project Vida's goal is to create 30 rental units with 5 PSH units set aside for households that are experiencing chronic homelessness or those at-risk of homelessness. 

Solutions for Veterans (Waco, TX)

Solutions for Veterans in a non-profit organization that aims to provide U.S. veterans with the housing and support they need to be self-sufficient. With a total of 453 units of housing already in operation, Solutions for Veterans aims to create an additional 34 units of PSH for veterans experiencing homelessness in Waco, TX. All 34 homes will be available to provide veterans with supportive services and case management.

Housing First Community Coalition is a non-profit organization based in San Antonio, TX that hopes to provide a welcoming home for seniors experiencing homelessness within their community. The coalition includes several different partners who came together with the goal to create a place where all their elders are cherished. Towne Twin Village, the collaborative project design of the coalition, will be a single-site housing community with a total of 205 units made up of 100 tiny homes, 25 RVs, and 80 apartments.
