Housing as a platform for supportive services is an effective way to reach low-income families living in public housing or other types of supportive or mixed-income communities. Urban Institute researchers have expanded upon this approach to reach the highest-need families where they live, by including or partnering with residents to build and improve the models of service delivery. This colloquy will highlight the Housing Opportunity and Services Together (HOST) research demonstration focused on wrap around, two-generation services for families and discuss on how Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) and other owners and operators of assisted housing can find creative ways to finance supportive services for residents. Presenters will discuss promising examples of partnerships between public housing authorities, human service providers, community residents, researchers, and policy makers to simultaneously finance, design, implement, study, and inform policies that support low-income families.
