CSH and its partners across the country are committed to ensuring that families involved in the child-welfare system have the housing assistance, community resources and supports needed for parents and children to grow together in safe, stable homes – reducing their involvement in the child welfare system. We also are building strong and compelling evidence of supportive housing’s potential as a cost-effective tool for improving family and child outcomes while addressing avoidable family separations and child removals.
