Introduction to CSH's FUSE Model
Communities spend billions of dollars on services that bounce vulnerable people 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.
While CSH has helped each of the communities implementing FUSE to adapt to the model to suit its unique local contexts and conditions, at the core of FUSE are three essential pillars. To learn more about this program, download the Blueprint for FUSE:
