Who Are We?
Low income housing is provided in several locations by the Virginia Supportive Housing. 

Provides permanent affordable housing with support services for homeless individuals and families and persons with special needs.

New Clay House
New Clay House features 47 rooms for single adults who pay a minimum of $25, or 30% of their income up to $430 per month. Located in the Carver Neighborhood, it has been home to over 170 individuals since it opened. The support services located in the building are unique to Virginia Supportive Housing and are a critical part of promoting the agency mission to initiate and promote the transition from homelessness to productivity and independence.

In 1996, Virginia Supportive Housing opened its second supportive residence (South Richmond SRO) which houses 39 formerly homeless adults. Support services are provided by VSH staff. Like New Clay House, residents pay 30% of their income with a minimum of $50 per month, up to a maximum of $389 per month.

Resident Achievement Program Support services, vital to the success of New Clay House and South Richmond SRO residents, are provided through the Resident Achievement Program (RAP). This comprehensive program emphasizes employment, literacy and recovery from substance abuse.

Who Are We?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Virginia Supportive Housing operates two single-room occupancy residences for 86 formerly homeless adults and two houses for 16 persons with HIV. All of the units and rooms are subsidized and fully furnished. Resident services are provided at all four residences by social workers who provide services on site and by referral to outside resources. Applications are taken to each site by appointment.

 Bliley Manor (6117 Bliley Road)& Stratford House: Virginia Supportive Housing has made great strides in overcoming many of the stigmas surrounding housing for persons with HIV/AIDS. Since 1998, Virginia Supportive Housing (VSH) has been providing HIV positive citizens of the Richmond Metropolitan Area with permanent housing and comprehensive support services. VSH owns and operates two houses, each housing eight single adults. Residents pay 30% of their income with a minimum of $50 per month up to a maximum of $305 per month.

Horizons at Stratford House, offers opportunities for people living with HIV/AIDS and battling substance abuse to enhance their quality of life. Horizons is an alcohol and drug free residence and engages residents with programming that challenges them to set goals by providing the support needed to achieve them. Through collaboration with local agencies, residents participate in substance abuse treatment, mental health counseling, medication adherence, independent skill building, and education. VSH works with the VCU Health System to provide the best supportive services possible to the residents at Bliley Manor and Stratford House. This innovative approach combines the strengths of both organizations.
