Office of Homelessness and Supportive Housing


Who we are:

The City of Chattanooga’s Office of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (OHSH) works to both prevent homelessness as well as rapidly house residents experiencing homelessness through street outreach services, community partnerships, a rapid re-housing program, as well as provide emergency services when needed.

Looking for help? Stop by our office during walk-in hours, 9am-4pm Monday-Friday. Our intake team will complete an assessment and connect you with resources as they are able. 

What we do:

  • The rapid re-housing program connects Chattanooga residents experiencing homelessness with short-term rental assistance and services to help them obtain housing quickly, increase self-sufficiency, and stay housed.
  • Street Outreach Specialists provide assistance to people in need, providing supplies such as tents, water, nonperishable food, first aid kits, sleeping bags, and lifesaving naloxone, replenishing supplies as needed.
  • Community partnerships with nonprofits and faith-based organizations are critical to comprehensively addressing homelessness in our community. OHSH works closely with a coalition of local partners, including the Chattanooga Regional Homeless Coalition, the Chatt Foundation, the Chattanooga Housing Authority, and others to ensure residents at risk of homelessness and those experiencing homelessness get the support they need to get back on their feet.
  • OHSH provides emergency services when a housing emergency occurs in Chattanooga. When extended-stay hotels or large housing complexes are closed or damaged during an emergency, OHSH responds in real-time to help ensure displaced families do not spend a single night unsheltered.
