What We Do

Supportive Housing Communities (SHC)



The mission of Supportive Housing Communities is to provide affordable housing to alleviate homelessness and human suffering.


Our vision is to develop and operate permanent supportive housing for men, women and families overcoming homelessness, especially veterans and those with mental illness, substance use, and medical or other disabling conditions.


Our goals include assisting residents in obtaining/remaining in permanent housing, encouraging residents to increase skills and/or find employment, fostering self-sufficiency and improving self-image, and supporting recovery and wellness.


SHC serves formerly homeless people with at least one disability. SHC residents must earn (through employment or earned benefits) less than 30% of area median income and contribute 30% of their income, if any, toward rent. All residents are homeless at the time of entry, with 82% being chronically homeless last fiscal year.

Interesting Info
  • SHC was established by two churches--St. Peter's Catholic and St. Peter's Episcopal. McCreesh Place is named in honor of Father Eugene McCreesh.
  • 97% of residents with a mental illness did not have to use emergency services for a mental health crisis in FY 2022.
  • 96% of residents remained in stable housing during FY 2022.
