Supportive Housing and Health Care
CSH is working to help supportive housing providers find more sustainable ways to finance the services component of their projects. Key to this will be increasing the partnership between state and local behavioral health agencies, Medicaid, Medicare and the managed care entities that are having an increasing role in health care financing.
This partnership also benefits health insurance programs, like Medicaid, which seek to reduce costs but cannot for homeless populations with complex, untreated conditions who access care through emergency rooms and other crisis settings.
Community Health Centers, including Health Care for the Homeless clinics, hospitals, mental health and substance use treatment programs and public health agencies, can all play a significant role in the creation of supportive housing and providing the wide array of services residents might need.
CSH is committed to finding opportunities to improve state and federal government policy and funding to ensure that residents of permanent supportive housing receive quality health services.
