A community 501(C)3 organization, Valley Supportive Housing Inc. , formerly known as Valley Area Community Support Inc. or VACSI, provides housing for these special men and women, people who frequently have few resources or references.  With the diminishing number of affordable rooms or apartments in the Valley - and sometimes the problem of landlords who simply don't understand the nature of these mental difficulties - Valley Supportive Housing works to provide alternatives.
