North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

Helping Chronically Homeless People Avoid High-Cost Health Care

The National Alliance to End Homelessness released a new advocacy tool, "Helping Chronically Homeless People Avoid High-Cost Health Care," designed for health policy audiences at all levels of government. This brief succinctly makes the case that permanent supportive housing should be part of health care solutions, especially where public resources are strained caring for chronically and highly vulnerable homeless people. Designed as a handout for policymakers and interested stakeholders, this brief can serve as a starting point to tailor messages about the relationship between permanent supportive housing and health care for audiences outside the homelessness arena.
