Why Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) in D.C.?

With the complex intersections of age, mental health, economics, and deep societal inequities, even deeply affordable housing is out of reach for many Village clients.

That is why N Street Village provides Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), which combines affordable housing with supportive services that provide clients with the tools to cope with mental health, addiction, trauma, physical health problems and other issues they might be experiencing.

According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, PSH reduces the usage of publicly funded crisis services (like jails, hospitalizations, and emergency departments), and increases stability and well-being.

N Street Village is currently the largest provider of PSH for women in D.C., offering over 140 units combined at the Flagship location, Erna’s House, Miriam’s House and Phyllis Wheatley YWCA.

Staff Spotlight: Meet Sangita!

Sangita Joshi is a cornerstone of our Village family – in the 11 years she has been here, she has served the Village clients with heart and passion.

How long have you been at N Street Village? I have been a part of the N Street Village family for a little over 11 years! I am currently the Director of Case Management, which includes managing the Holistic Housing Program.

What is the Holistic Housing Program? When naming this program, we intentionally chose to call it holistic because that is what it truly is – recognizing the whole of a woman’s experiences and helping her to uncover and realize what she needs to be her best self. The program is located on the fifth floor of the Flagship building and can support up to 21 women as they make strides in their recovery – whether that is mental health, physical health, trauma, substance use disorder and/or financial insecurity. Last month, we were proud to have five women graduate and move on to the next step in their journey.

Can you describe N Street Village in three words? Hope. Courage. Patience. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? I am an ice cream connoisseur! If I wasn’t working at N Street Village, my dream job would be working as an official taste tester for Ben and Jerry’s. As far as my current favorite, it depends…but we can start with Phish Food. My dad always says that no matter how full you are, there is always room for ice cream!
