Social Innovation Fund Initiative

Backed by a prestigious federal Social Innovation Fund award, CSH is working with subgrantees in four communities to carry out pilot programs that leverage supportive housing linked to health services to save public dollars and improve lives.

Health, Housing & Homelessness

CSH is carrying out a five-year national initiative to address the growing U.S. problem of rising health care costs by pulling people with the most complex issues out of the revolving door of costly crisis health services.


Ann Arbor, MI

By combining its own resources with others, Avalon Housing is providing housing and care coordination facilitated through an intensive case management team that includes a multi-disciplinary group of doctors, case managers, providers, homeless outreach workers and shelter staff.



AIDS Connecticut builds on a health home outreach model. Individuals identified through a match between the state’s Medicaid administrative data and Homeless Management Information Systems are provided supportive housing linked to health services within a coordinated delivery system.


Los Angeles County, CA

The Los Angeles County Partnership brings together housing, social service and health organizations using a data-based homelessness “crisis indicator” to coordinate, identify and house individuals who are the most expensive users of publicly funded services in low-wealth sections of the County.


San Francisco, CA

Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation, in partnership with the San Francisco Department of Public Health and San Francisco Health Plan, is providing housing and health care at the newly constructed Kelly Cullen Community (KCC) supportive housing development.
