Health Equity

Corporation for Supportive Housing

2021 - $75,000

This funding will support an effort to better link the health care and homeless systems to improve the health of people experiencing homelessness in Connecticut. Although stable housing is widely recognized as important to maintaining good health, the health care system and systems addressing housing and homelessness are not well connected. This project is aimed at creating a model for better coordination, using community health workers to help foster connections. This initiative includes establishing ways for community health centers and homeless systems to share data to connect patients to resources, and training staff at community health centers on ways to meet the needs of patients experiencing homelessness.
