POAH’s Trauma-Informed Housing Toolkit

A safe, affordable home can help to support resident wellbeing and foster resilience when affordable housing owners, operators and practitioners are using trauma-informed principles to inform design, programming, and management. The Trauma-Informed Housing Toolkit is designed for owners, resident services providers, property management companies, community residents, and others to advance equity and economic opportunity in affordable housing.

POAH created this toolkit to inspire mission-driven housing providers to adopt a trauma-informed approach to housing. This toolkit should be used to learn, spark ideas, and adapt practices to your work.
