Welcome Home
The Resource Center created this practical guide to help supportive housing providers work collaboratively with child welfare and other systems to improve outcomes for vulnerable families. This guide includes tips for: coordinating care with families and partners; improving family engagement; addressing stress and trauma; supporting optimal development for children and youth. It also contains a self-assessment guide and a comprehensive set of additional resources.

Delivering Services to Families in Supportive Housing
This framework is intended to guide and support front-line staff as they develop consistent practices with families by: describing the role of the case manager in family supportive housing; defining the values and principles that undergird interactions case managers have with family members; defining the core components of case management practice, requisite case manager skills and knowledge; providing direction for assessing how well practice components are being implemented; and so much more!

Tenant Manual
This manual was specifically designed by the Resource Center for supportive housing providers working with families, especially those involved with the child welfare system.  The goal was to develop a template that supportive housing providers could use and adapt to their own distinctive environments. This tool should be used in conjunction with others produced by the Resource Center to support practice and structural changes that will help programs effectively provide whole family care unique to supportive housing. 
Five grantees representing over 65 public and private collaborations are part of the national Partnerships to Demonstrate the Effectiveness of Supportive Housing for Families in the Child Welfare System and are implementing family supportive housing in their communities. Visit the Child Welfare and Supportive Housing Resource Center online for more detailed information about the local demonstrations. The Resource Center provides expert technical assistance to the five sites across the country. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children, & Families (ACF), Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), and four national foundations developed the $35 million public-private partnership designed to demonstrate the effectiveness of supportive housing for child welfare-involved families. Collaborating  and funding foundations include the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), Annie E. Casey Foundation, Casey Family Programs, and Edna McConnell Clark Foundation.
