Estimating Cross-Sector Impacts of Permanent Supportive Housing in Los Angeles Evidence Brief

Overview

S4A investigators at the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health created a novel initiative in 2012, Housing for Health (HFH), with a three-pronged mission:

(1) to end homelessness in L.A. County, (2) to reduce the need for costly medical care services, and (3) to improve health outcomes for people experiencing housing insecurity.

The initiative provides permanent supportive housing programming (housing placement, financial subsidies, and supportive services) to homeless individuals who are high-utilizers of county-provided health services.
