In the midst of a homeless services system that struggles to keep pace with the increasing rates and complexities of homelessness, HCHN programs find and connect with our most vulnerable.
1. Walk-in clinics for youth and young adults tailored their strategies to assure hours and sites were most convenient and comfortable.
Over 500 youth participated in preventive services, primary care, and behavioral health visits.
2. Nurses and social workers visited families in shelters, day centers, and supportive housing.
Over 1,000 families linked to prenatal care, parent child health services, and stability supports.
3. Interdisciplinary teams conducted outreach in encampments, on the streets, and from jails and crisis facilities.
Over 2,000 single adults connected to health, housing, and social services, including benefits enrollment.
