Numerous studies over the past two decades have shown the importance of stable housing in overall health and life outcomes. Permanent supportive housing for people who are homeless with complex health needs has proven to be a cost-effective intervention that significantly reduces more expensive crisis services such as emergency rooms, hospitals and jails.
AFC's supportive housing programs aim to reduce homelessness, improve housing stability, address special needs and decrease costs.
AFC operates nearly 600 units of Permanent Supportive Housing in partnership with 11 partner agencies throughout the Chicagoland region.
