Supportive Housing Assoc. of New Jersey (SHA) Community Housing with Support:

New Jersey

"The Supportive Housing Association of New Jersey is a nonprofit with 16 years of experience consisting of over 100 member organizations and representing the NJ supportive housing industry. Many members are property developers and the service providers who create community housing along with supports for people with disabilities. Over 50% of members represent the needs of PWI/DD. SHA is uniquely qualified to develop and direct an investigation into supportive housing options, understanding the field comprehensively and having a pipeline to information through housing experts, families/consumers and public officials.

The purpose of this project is to identify the broad array of housing models available in NJ and elsewhere, and to empower families and consumers by providing a tool kit to expand options for independent living. Additionally, the project will lay the foundation for systems change within housing and supports for PWI/DD. It will commence with a research investigation into current and potential housing models in NJ and other states and result in a rewrite of the NJ Housing Resource Guide."
