Challenge

More than 73,600 individuals experience homelessness each year in the City of Chicago, 22,800 (31%) of whom are women and 7,300 (10%) of whom are identified as “chronically homeless.” Facing multiple barriers to achieving sustainable housing, women who are chronically homeless are the individuals for whom Deborah’s Place strives to provide a safe, stable, and supportive environment that affords them the opportunity to determine their own pathways to healing, growth and change.

Solution

Deborah’s Place offers women experiencing chronic homelessness a “permanent supportive housing” model, which combines affordable housing with supportive services, such as case management, health care, and education and employment services.

Long-Term Impact

The permanent supportive housing services Deborah's Place provides is proven to be the most compassionate and cost-effective solution to homelessness.
