Permanent Supportive Housing
Louisiana’s PSH program was created, through DHH, in response to the devastation of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Many of our most vulnerable citizens were displaced, left homeless, and forced to relocate by these disasters, and Louisiana set out to create a comprehensive integrated housing system that could address these issues on a local level.
The intention of PSH is to address homelessness for persons with low-income and long-term disabilities, who have difficulty living successfully in the community and may become homeless or institutionalized without support. The PSH program is open to anyone meeting financial eligibility, who has a long-term disability, including mental health, physical, and/or cognitive disabilities, and who has a need for long-term services.
