How does supportive housing work?

Supportive housing units are generally integrated in new affordable housing developments. San Diego County Behavioral Health Services Division (BHS) works with developers and community partners to make a small percentage of the units available to qualified participants in Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs and to provide them with mental health services, case management, recovery services, educational programs, employment opportunities or training, and social services.

Participants hold their own leases and contribute to their rents, and are subject to the same rules and regulations as all other tenants.
