Connecticut Super Utilizer Initiatives

FUSE Supportive Housing Programs in Connecticut

Communities spend billions of dollars on services that bounce vulnerable people (known as super utilizers) between shelters, hospitals, jails, treatment programs, foster care and the streets. CSH's FUSE model works to solve this problem.

FUSE helps communities to break the cycle of homelessness and crisis among individuals with complex behavioral health challenges who are the highest users of emergency rooms, jails, shelters, clinics and other costly crisis service systems.

FUSE increases housing stability and reduces multiple crisis service use--which means more effective use of public funds.

To access how-to guidance, templates, research, and case studies for FUSE, visits CSH's FUSE Resource Center.


Programs in Connecticut

One of the earliest communities to implement a FUSE model initiative, Connecticut currently has two FUSE supportive housing programs:

CT Collaborative on Re-Entry (CCR)
Identifies and targets housing and services to super utilizers of jail and shelter services who are experiencing homelessness.

Connecticut Integrated Healthcare & Housing Neighborhoods (CIHHN)
Identifies and targets housing and services to Medicaid-enrolled super utilizers of health services who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness.
