Housing Stabilization and Case Management

Housing stabilization supports and case management services can help people who have experienced homelessness become successful tenants and achieve housing stability.  PHAs can partner with service providers to deliver supports to households that have been experiencing homelessness prior to receiving housing assistance. 

Housing stabilization supports are usually time-limited, and services are most intensive at the point when families and individuals exit homelessness and move into permanent housing.  Services are often delivered in the participant’s home and in the community, and focus on helping people improve their housing-related skills.  Housing stabilization services also help people establish or strengthen their connections to community services and other resources, including facilitating the use of informal or “natural” support from family members, friends, faith communities, and others.
