This facility in Guerneville
West County Community Services opened this home in 2013 to provide permanent, supportive housing to 8 chronically homeless adults with disabilities. Each adult has an individual bedroom and shares the living room, kitchen, bathrooms, laundry facilities, and yard. WCCS manages the house and provides a wide variety of support services and case management to help residents meet their medical, financial and other personal needs. The services have successfully helped the residents improve the quality of their lives and maintain a stable housing situation.
Supportive housing is an evidence-based housing intervention that combines non-time-limited affordable housing assistance with wrap-around supportive services for people experiencing homelessness, as well as other people with disabilities.
Research has proven that supportive housing is a cost-effective solution to homelessness, particularly for people experiencing chronic homelessness.
