This webinar will discuss a report which evaluates the Housing for Health (HFH) initiative. The HFH initiative was created in 2012 by the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS) and was designed to reduce homelessness and inappropriate use of expensive health care resources, and improve health outcomes for this vulnerable population. Homeless individuals who are high utilizers of medical services are referred to permanent supportive housing (PHS) and intensive case management services, and subsequently to benefits and services provided by agencies in multiple sectors, including substance use treatment services.
