Much has changed since the publication of the 2001 edition of the CSH Between the Lines Guide, as more communities have embraced permanent supportive housing as the model for reducing homelessness among populations vulnerable to housing instability. The law has changed as well, often attempting to catch up with this trend.

CSH engaged 2001 Between the Lines authors Goldfarb & Lipman, L.L.P., to draft an updated version of the Guide to address these changes in the law and to update readers on new interpretations of previously-referenced laws.

The Appendices to the Guide are extensive, and include a full glossary of legal terms, clarification of reasonable accommodation requirements, and legal definitions. As with the previous edition of the Guide, we hope readers will use the Guide to further the CSH goal of creating stable housing for homeless individuals and families.
