Promoting Housing Stability

Stable housing gives people who live with mental illness, substance use disorders, and co-occurring disorders a foundation to succeed in recovery. There are many issues that might challenge someone's housing stability, such as

  • Symptoms
  • Interpersonal conflicts
  • Hoarding
  • Not following rules
  • Unemployment and underemployment
  • Benefits concerns and other financial issues
  • Trauma triggers

The way service providers respond to and interact with residents can positively influence their future success. Learn to build self-awareness about your attitudes, thoughts, and communication style as you conduct your work. Learn to keep your attention centered on residents. Learn how to explore and encourage motivation to change. 


The Center for Evidence-Based Practices provides training for staff, supervisors, and administrators in a variety of housing services, such as

  • PSH/Permanent Supportive & Independent Housing
  • Transitional Housing
  • Residential
  • Adult Care Facilities
  • Emergency Shelters
  • YMCA & YWCA Housing
  • Community CPST
  • Recovery Houses
