HSRC Case Study Webinar Materials: Solving for Homelessness among Older Adults, People with Disabilities, and Other Populations

Webinar Materials:

Webinar Date: April 18, 2023

Homelessness for individuals is solvable when systems that support housing, health, and community living work together to address housing instability. This Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) webinar featured a model collaboration in a county with high rates of homelessness. Together, the regional task force on homelessness (which serves as the Continuum of Care); the county government division on aging and independence services and divisions on health; and other community-based organizations developed a coordinated approach to reducing homelessness among a population that each had been separately serving.

Webinar participants learned about:

  • Steps that these local partners took to begin and sustain their partnership—even through challenging times.
  • Replicable strategies to create bridges across systems so individuals can have both housing without precondition and access to self-directed or person-centered comprehensive services that they choose.
  • Improvements in housing stability made possible by leveraging each sector’s strengths and expertise.

The webinar also included a roadmap on the initial four aspects of planning cross-sector solutions to housing and homelessness.

This webinar is part of an HSRC series on partnerships between systems so older adults, people with disabilities, and people experiencing homelessness can access all resources and ultimately have stable housing in the community.

Launched in partnership between the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services and Housing and Urban Development, the HSRC fosters cross-sector 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. The HSRC is part of an interagency initiative to streamline and expand access to affordable, accessible housing and the critical services that make community living possible.
