CSH partners with funders, developers and providers of supportive housing to advance high-quality housing and service partnerships that promote resilient and equitable communities through its Dimensions of Quality Supportive Housing Tools and Certification program.
CSH provides numerous resources including:
- Supportive Housing Quality Toolkit: View the Toolkit to review Quality Planning in action. Our toolkit has templates and tools you need to ensure quality practices in developing and operating new supportive housing.
Dimensions of Quality Guidebook:This resource will help you understand Quality Standards in planning and operating Quality Supportive Housing.
Commitment to Quality Checklist: This tool is intended for projects in the pre-development phase of planning and design and can be used by pre-development, capital, operating, and services funders to assess whether projects are meeting the Dimensions of Quality for Supportive Housing.
Intro to Quality Supportive Housing Training: This self-paced online class is designed to expose you to and explain the high standards and certification process CSH has established to identify the best, most-effective supportive housing in the country.
Supportive Housing Services Budgeting Tool: This tool was designed to support agencies, communities, and project planners estimate the costs for supportive housing services. The tool uses a template that has built in assumptions around best practice staffing models, case load sizes, and program budget considerations unique to scattered-site and project-based supportive housing models. The tool allows each agency or community to input their average staffing costs, budget assumptions, and productivity expectations to determine rates needed by agencies for a fiscally sustainable program.
