supportive housing

Supportive housing is a form of co-housing? designed to support individuals not just socially but with basic life skill?s. Usually on an ongoing/permanent basis or through a transition period of strong dependence on others.

The type, and level of support is dependent on the specific needs, wishes (and in many instances, ability to pay) of the individuals and their families. Some examples of supportive housing:
  • A nursing home) or ((retirement community?, e.g. Eden Alternative?
  • Half-way house?, e.g. Elizabeth Fry Society?, John Howard Society?
  • Homes for the intellectually challenged? or for those with "mental illness?" - see consumer survivor?
  • Housing with supports for survivors of abuse?, e.g. rape?, pedophilia?

An eco-village can be considered a form of supportive housing in a society where ecological rape, pillage and trade in products of cruelty is normal. See Sustainable Amish? for an example of this village? mentality.
