Service coordination can help people achieve and maintain housing stability, wellness, and independence by identifying and connecting the services and supports they want and need. Examples of service coordination activities include person-centered counseling, options counseling, care coordination, and care management.
Many older adults, people with disabilities, and people who are experiencing (or are at risk of experiencing) homelessness would benefit from improved access to service coordination. One strategy to increase access to service coordination is “braiding,” which involves lacing funds from multiple sources, each funding unique activities, together to support a common goal while maintaining the specific program identity of each individual funding source.
This Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) webinar will feature two models for braiding funding streams across sectors to maximize the use of existing resources and broaden access to service coordination in a sustainable way. Presenters will discuss program structure, funding and braiding process, partnerships, and outcomes. Webinar participants from disability and aging networks and in health, homelessness, and housing organizations will gain ideas for adapting these models to extend access to service coordination throughout their communities.
This webinar is part of an HSRC series on partnerships between systems that can help older adults, people with disabilities, and people experiencing homelessness access all available resources and ultimately secure stable housing in the community.

Launched in partnership between the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services and Housing and Urban Development, the Housing and Services Resource Center 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.
