In partnership with nursing homes, hospitals, and community-based organizations, two states have developed innovative programs that have assisted more than 5,000 people with settling back into homes in the community and have reduced readmissions.
What are the core elements of these programs? What roles do industry, other state programs, and community service providers play? How can states and local partners overcome common barriers? In this Housing and Services Resource Center webinar, two panels explored these questions. and discussed funding sources, tools, and tips for replicating these models in other states.
Launched in partnership between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) was created for to foster collaboration and partnerships between the organizations and systems that provide housing resources and homelessness services, health care and mental health services, independent living services and other supportive services, and others who are working to help people live successfully and stably in the community. HHS and HUD are working together to expand accessible, affordable housing; streamline access to services; coordinate and better leverage resources; and ultimately help people exit homelessness and make living in the community possible for more people.
