The Mission of Springfield Supported Housing Program(SSHP) is to be a person centered program providing resources towards safe, stable, and affordable housing options while collaborating with community partners on all aspects of housing instability.
The Springfield Supported Housing Program (SSHP) was founded in 2006 to assist families and individuals in Windsor and Northern Windham counties who were either homeless, or in danger of losing their housing, find permanent, affordable housing and receive at home case management for 6 months to two years.
In 2008 SSHP received the Vermont Agency of Human Services Award
“In recognition of extraordinary contributions to the health and wellbeing of Vermonters.”
SSHP also has a transitional housing program that has received statewide recognition
as a model of best practice for housing the homeless.
The program has housed between 80-100 people every year of operation and 95% have retained their housing.
