Health and Housing Consortia: Responding to COVID-19 Through Cross-Sector Learning and Collaboration
Health Affairs blog post published April 21, 2020, with the Bronx Health & Housing Consortium.
The Annual Hospital Homeless Count Report describes the findings of the Health & Housing Consortium’s point-in-time census of people experiencing homelessness in New York City hospital emergency departments. This report serves a supplement to the City’s Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE) of people experiencing unsheltered homelessness, which only covers streets and subways.
Advocacy and Policy Development
Our Letter from Hospital Providers Regarding COVID-19 and Homelessness in New York City was submitted to city and state officials with signatures from 503 New York City frontline physicians, social workers, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, care managers, and other health professionals. This letter received press coverage on Politico and VICE.
We provided recommendations in United Hospital Fund’s publication The Road Forward: Framework for a Population Health Approach to Health and Housing Partnerships, a project of the New York City Population Health Improvement Program (NYC PHIP), that provides a policy agenda for the next mayor of New York City. The Consortium was then featured in a commentary piece as a helpful model for multisector collaborations.
We also provided recommendations that were included in the United for Housing Campaign, which defines a new affordable housing platform for the next 2021 New York City mayoral administration. The Brooklyn Consortium provided comments in the Housing Poverty and Homeless Policy section of the report, which declares that housing is healthcare for hospitalized homeless individuals. Finally, we offered housing solutions to people experiencing homelessness prior to hospital discharge.
