HOUSING SYSTEM NAVIGATION

How we do it
The Housing System Navigation program is available to individuals experiencing chronic homelessness and who are matched to Permanent Supportive Housing through Chicago's Coordinated Entry System (CES). Housing Navigators will conduct street outreach and in-reach at shelters and other community agencies such as food pantries and drop-in centers to locate matched individuals and enroll them in the HSN program. Once enrolled, each Navigator will provide supportive services until they are housed in a PSH program.
