Outreach and Unsheltered Homelessness: Strategies for Health Centers and Service Providers

Due to limited resources, fewer community connections, and more exposure to the elements, people experiencing unsheltered homelessness have a heightened risk of injury and severe health issues. This is especially true during times of disaster and public emergency. As many communities learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, meaningful outreach and linkage to care for unsheltered individuals is vital for public health. This national webinar highlighted emerging practices in reaching unsheltered populations, with a focus on the importance of peer specialists with lived expertise. Attendees learned and discussed relevant strategies for health and housing-focused outreach to people experiencing unsheltered homelessness.
