Single-site Permanent Supportive Housing Program

Organization: Open Arms Housing

Open Arms Housing hosts two single-site PSH buildings-the Dunbar and Owen Place. Both facilities are apartment-style buildings housing women experiencing homelessness with on-site support services. The availability of an on-site certified Peer Specialist and Case Managers with whom clients can consult, arrange benefits, and request access to mobile treatment teams, helps to ensure accessibility to supportive services at a level and pace determined by the residents.

From its conception, Open Arms has stressed the provision of quality living spaces with full bath and kitchen for each resident; shared common space; customization of units to meet the special mobility and other needs of residents; a secure and safe building to call home; and effective property management that keeps each unit a healthy and responsive place to live.
