We provided funding to four health-related nonprofit agencies for the construction of housing, as well as the provision of case management and health care services for their clients. This work used a “housing first” approach, based on the idea that lasting health improvements can be built off the foundation of a safe, stable place to live. This supportive housing strategy gives tenants easy access to a variety of voluntary services designed to help them become healthier and more self-sufficient.
