Housing is a critical component to securing other resources for those families and individuals in need of stability. Unfortunately, today in Southwest Florida we do not have an adequate supply of housing that is affordable to the homeless and extremely low-income populations. We as a community must be creative and consider innovative solutions.

In Charlotte County today there is no shelter or emergency housing option for unaccompanied runaway or homeless youth. Youth from Charlotte County must either go to Sarasota or Lee County in order to find housing. We will pursue partnerships and housing options for youth and family services to address the needs of homeless youth in all of Southwest Florida.

Punta Gorda Housing Authority

The primary role of a Public Housing Authority is the delivery of quality, affordable rental housing and rental subsidies to qualified low-income households within its jurisdiction.
The Punta Gorda Housing Authority operates the Public Housing program and the Housing Choice Voucher program (also known as Section 8) for low income residents within its jurisdiction of Charlotte County.

Community Assisted & Supported Living

Community Assisted and Supported Living provides various levels of care to suit the diverse needs of our residents. The levels
of care include an assisted living facility, independent housing, family style homes, and live-in support.
