Adequate housing is a necessity in every person’s life.  The availability of a broad spectrum of housing options, accompanied by a wide range of support services, is critical to community integration and recovery.

Local, state, and federal authorities must provide sufficient funding for rental subsidies, and/or the capital costs of acquiring and rehabilitating affordable housing as well as residential operating costs to assure the availability of housing to meet the needs of people with psychiatric disabilities.

Because private sector housing has not provided sufficient access to housing, and because private market housing has no linkage to services that help sustain people in their homes, CASRA views housing development as a critical advocacy effort.
