What is the Housed and Healthy Program?

The Housed and Healthy program is designed to incentivize individuals experiencing homelessness to access various healthcare and case management services at HOPES. Part of the program provides a passport-like booklet for individuals to use as a roadmap for their personalized treatment plan. The passport includes pages for primary care, housing case management, food pick up and more! Once clients utilize these services and fill their passport, they will be eligible to receive a Citipak back pack full of outreach supplies.

This program will help bridge the gaps between the streets and permanent housing by engaging highly service-resistant individuals in HOPES’ care. When they are ready to take that next step, they will already be comfortable working with HOPES to take control of their health.

The purpose of the program is to:

Engage individuals experiencing homelessness and provide intensive case-management and wrap around services to empower and improve health outcomes and quality of life.

Services may include:

  • Case management
  • Primary Care
  • Behavioral health
  • Support services
  • Short-term stabilization housing
  • Permanent housing placement
  • HCV/HIV testing
