Darlington Road Apartments in Squirrel Hill.In 1990, ACTION-Housing established its management entity, Supportive Housing Management Services (SHMS), as a result of its mission-oriented need to have a more direct role in the physical management of its growing portfolio of properties, and the need to ensure a better delivery system of supportive services to enrich the lives of its residents.  Today, SHMS is a full service management company with an annual operating budget approaching $7 million.

SHMS manages 35 Developments comprised of 1,289 units located in four counties—Allegheny, Beaver, Westmoreland, and Somerset—as follows:

  • Very low-income persons with disabilities: 10 Developments containing 153 units
  • Very low-income seniors: 16 Developments containing 700 units
  • Low-income families: 6 Developments containing 314 units
  • Homeless individuals: 3 Developments containing 122 units

12 of these developments, comprising 538 units of housing, have Service Coordinators who act as liaisons between residents and service providers in the community to address resident needs.  The Service Coordination Program was initiated in 1998 to ensure that SHMS residents maintained their independence.  Since its inception, the Service Coordination program has successfully connected residents to essential supportive services and resources, allowing them to remain in their units and eliminating the added cost of transferring to a long-term care facility.
