Supportive Housing

CIS is committed to providing permanent housing and supportive services to vulnerable populations and people in need. The journey out of homelessness requires stability in order to be self-sustaining, and CIS programs are here to help.

 

PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING – INDIVIDUALS & FAMILIES

 

The Salvation Army Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Program is a new scattered-site housing project that serves chronically homeless individuals and families with long term rental assistance paired with supportive services to assist homeless persons with a disability (or families with a qualifying household member with a disability) achieve housing stability. To be eligible, individuals and families must be chronically homeless, have a disability, have very low income below 50% AMI. All participants must also be in the CES system prior to enrollment in the program.

 

PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING – TRANSITIONAL AGE YOUTH

 

The Transitional Age Youth (TAY) program serves chronically homeless youth in Los Angeles County. It provides them with long term rental assistance paired with supportive services to assist homeless persons with a disability to achieve housing stability. To be eligible, individuals must be between 18 to 24 years old, have a disability and have very low income below 50% AMI. All participants must also be in the CES system prior to enrollment in the program. Unaccompanied minors are not eligible for the program.

 

SHALLOW SUBSIDY PROGRAM – INDIVIDUALS & FAMILIES

 

The Salvation Army Shallow Subsidy Program is designed to provide additional support to participants who have received rapid-rehousing assistance and need on-going rental assistance to maintain their housing due to rent burden and low income. The program provides individuals with a $300 rent subsidy and families with $500 rent subsidy for a period of up to 5 years, depending on their level of need. Additionally, the program has prioritized 20 percent of its slots for Seniors (persons 62 and older) who need rental assistance to maintain their housing due to rent burden and low income while waiting for affordable/low-income housing. This program strives to achieve housing stability and assist participants to work toward the goal of fully assuming rent. To be eligible, individuals and families must be currently active in a rapid re-housing program and have very low income below 50% AMI. Participants must be able to pay 60% or more of their total income towards rent.
