On the Ground Floor: Housing First Frequent Users of Health Systems Initiative Common Challenges & Promising Community Practices

In this brief, we document some of the common dynamics communities face when advancing supportive housing and health center partnerships that target homeless individuals who frequently use hospital and emergency departments for preventable reasons in four leading communities across the country: Los Angeles, CA (10th Decile Project); Camden, NJ (Camden Housing First Pilot); Orlando, FL (Housing the First 100); and Indianapolis, IN (Penn Place).
