The Purpose of Building Support for Supportive Housing: With the understanding that no magic bullet exists for suc- cessfully siting supportive housing, the following manual and attachments are intended to provide the tools for minimizing resistance and maximizing success. The manual seeks to define essential outreach principles, provide useful tools and proto- types and offer practical resources, including persuasive media coverage and relevant property value studies. This manual is not intended to be a cure-all for NIMBY opposition, but it does attempt to distill the knowledge accumulated by the Good Neighbor Initiative as well as the lessons learned by nonprofits seeking to develop supportive and affordable housing over the past 20 years.
