GEORGIA SUPPORTIVE HOUSING ASSOCIATION 


Strengthening Housing Resources In Our State

Our Vision

A Georgia where individuals with disabilities have the housing and support they choose in order to thrive.

What We Do

The GSHA seeks to advance the creation and preservation of quality supportive housing in Georgia. We provide sufficient resources for this effort through education and advocacy.

Since 2008, the GSHA has served Georgia’s network of professionals working in the field of supportive housing. We are the only nonprofit in Georgia dedicated to developers, executives, and frontline staff of supportive housing and service providers

Our Advocacy

- Increasing education in Georgia about the need for supportive housing for special demographics, such as vulnerable seniors, Reentry housing, youth housing, and housing for individuals with developmental disabilities and intellectual disabilities.

- Increasing information for legislators, stakeholders, and the public about the
cost-effectiveness of permanent, supportive housing.

- Promoting supportive housing programs and tackling stigma.
- Working to ensure Reentry Housing is a key considered part of the Criminal Justice Reform Council.

- Educating legislators and stakeholders about discriminatory zoning laws.

- Advocating with state agency partners for greater development capital for the extremely low income demographic.

- Promoting federal and state initiatives that support public education and funding for supportive housing, protect funding for providers, and include supportive housing in health care reform implementation.

WHAT OUR COMMUNITY SAYS

KIND WORDS FROM OUR WONDERFUL TEAM

As a supportive housing developer, the connections I have with other members of GSHA are indispensable. GSHA helps me network with groups that are critical to providing quality supportive housing but are outside my circle of housing providers. My supportive housing developments are better because of my involvement with GSHA.”

— Jon  Toppen
Tapestry Development Group, GSHA Board Chair, 2016-2018.

"The GSHA is very much a successful grassroots operation aimed at the growth and promotion of supportive housing in the state of Georgia. Its impact far exceeds the minuscule budget it operates under. The GSHA has been a key player in creating awareness about the importance of housing for challenged populations and has a voice that is listened to amongst Georgia’s key officials."

Tod Citron
GSHA Past-President.
