What is Transitional Housing (TH)?

 

Transitional housing (TH) has taken on different meanings and forms through the years. Though it takes many forms, transitional housing broadly refers to a supportive community that offers temporary housing for different segments of the homeless population or those experiencing a crisis. 

 

Transitional housing is temporary housing for certain segments of the homeless population, including working homeless people who are earning too little money to afford long-term housing. Transitional housing is set up to transition residents into permanent, affordable housing.

What is Permanent Housing(PH)?

Permanent housing (PH) is defined as community-based housing without a designated length of stay in which formerly homeless individuals and families live as independently as possible. Permanent housing refers to what the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) calls permanent supported housing, which provides affordable housing tied to supportive services, such as ongoing addiction or mental health treatment, case management, and help with life skills.

What is Supportive Living?

An assisted residence or supportive living home is a for people such as; veterans, seniors, individuals with disabilities or adults who cannot or choose not to live independently.

The difference between nursing home care and supportive living is that nursing homes provide medical and personal care in a clinical setting, while supportive living primarily provides personal care in a home-like, social setting but does not provide medical care.

 

What is Independent Living?

An independent living facility is a housing facility for people such as; veterans, seniors, individuals with disabilities or adults that don't want to live in a nursing facility.

Independent living community staff will take care of the grounds and common areas, and housekeeping.
