Welcome to the Housing and Services Resource Center!
The Housing and Services Resource Center was created for people who work in the organizations and systems that provide housing resources and homelessness services, behavioral and mental health services, independent living services and other supportive services, and others who are working to help people live successfully and stably in the community.
Our goal is to foster collaboration and cross-sector partnerships, in order to streamline access to services, better leverage resources, and ultimately make community living possible for more people.
People working in these organizations can use this site to:
- Learn about how to develop and expand partnerships,
- Quickly find tools designed for community collaborations,
- Increase knowledge to support people with disabilities, older adults, and people experiencing homelessness to get and/or keep affordable and accessible housing and voluntary services, and
- Discover innovative models and strategies.
The Center is part of a partnership between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to make community living a reality for all. This partnership will expand accessible, affordable housing; help people exit homelessness; improve home and community-based services; and address the institutional bias in America's long-term care system.

Resource Spotlight: Disability Information and Access Line Video
The Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL) is a no-cost hotline that helps people with disabilities access information about COVID-19 vaccines and tests, as well as identify, locate, and connect to community resources and programs that support independent living such as housing, nutrition, transportation, and more. A new video provides an overview of DIAL along with contact information.
