ACC-OC Permanent Supportive Housing Tour
The Association of California Cities - Orange County is committed to finding solutions for the region's homelessness crisis. In June, ACC-OC sponsored a bus tour that gave members a first hand look at what Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) looks like. Tour attendees were shocked to find out the PSH homes look every bit as beautiful as surrounding neighborhoods and that many PSH communities combine vulnerable populations with market-rate neighbors. PSH is a solution that works and ACC-OC is doing all we can to give our communities the tools they need to be successful.

Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) is more than just housing. These residences have on-site services by trained professionals that meet the behavioral, mental, and physical needs of residents. PSH is designed to be all-encompassing and to give our most vulnerable neighbors a chance at successful living.
Permanent Supportive Housing Changes Lives
This woman lived on the street. Her children grew up in a world of uncertainty and instability. But everything changed when she was accepted into a Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) community. Now her children walk to school, her twins attend preschool, and she recently became engaged. Her gratitude and appreciation of what is PSH has given her and her family is immeasurable. ACC-OC is doing all it can to ensure that our communities have the tools and resources they need to support and develop PSH - and give our most vulnerable neighbors a chance at successful living.
ACC-OC CEO discusses Permanent Supportive Housing
Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) is a true collaborative effort. It takes the public, private, and non-profit sectors joining forces to combat homelessness. CEO Heather Stratman is on the front-line advocating for PSH, a proven tool when it comes to solving homelessness.
Non-profit builders play important role in Permanent Supportive Housing
George Searcy is Senior Vice President of Community Imapct for Jamboree Housing. Jamboree has been building Permanent Supportive Housing and affordable housing for more than three decades. They know how successful these projects can be but they also know hoe difficult they are to finance. Working in collaboration with public, private, and non-profit organizations is the best way to make sure our homeless population has access to chance at success.
