Utilizing Community Health Workers for SDOH Screening and Housing Navigation
CSH hosted a webinar to inform the role of Community Health Workers (CHWs) is essential to screening and addressing for Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) such as housing. This national webinar will explore the role of Health Centers in the local Homeless Response Continuum of Care and how the expertise of CHWs can be leveraged to screen for social risk factors and provide housing navigation services for patients experiencing homelessness or housing instability.

Housing First 101 – A Quick Guide for Health Centers
Housing First is the basic idea that everyone is ready for housing regardless of the complexity or the severity of their needs. Most importantly, it is more than a project or program model, it is a system-wide framework. Housing First stands opposed to the “Housing Ready” approach where patients must achieve certain benchmarks, such as consistent sobriety or engagement with a healthcare provider, before receiving housing placement. Evidence tells us that access to safe, quality, affordable housing—and the supports necessary to maintain that housing—constitutes one of the most basic and powerful social determinants of health and why housing itself is healthcare.
