Journey Home

2023 - $25,000

This funding will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of a medical liaison working in a hospital setting to address issues related to homelessness and social determinants of health. The organization will work with a research and consulting firm to see if the liaison will help to reduce health care costs and to identify the cost benefit. A homeless medical liaison would act as a bridge between the systems of housing and health care to increase coordination between the two.
