"Supportive housing programs" are programs that are designed to provide supportive services in conjunction with some form of housing assistance—be it small group homes, larger institutions, or apartment-based living. In commissioning this study, HUD was responding to a number of concerns that have been raised in various communities about possible negative effects of supportive housing programs. This study was designed to take an objective look at the issues that arise around supportive housing programs and to examine whether supportive housing sites do have the negative impacts that their critics contend. For the purpose of this report, supportive housing sites in Denver, Colorado have been observed.
