76% Housing Retention

259 people moved into permanent housing from June through October of 2013. 76% of them are still in housing one year later.

A study by Dr. Sam Tsemberis on Housing First has shown that if people do not receive ongoing support services once they move into their own apartment, the annual housing retention drops to 25% (Tsemberis, Gulcur, and Nakae, 2004).
