  1. 1. Hope for the Hopeless A Path to Housing FirstDesigns, Land, Prototype, Services, Funding & Sustainable Community Living Supportive Housing for the New Age Homelessness Can Be Ended
  2. 2. Other Communities are doing Housing First Many definitions, many approaches Confusing to some, does mean housing before.. Local model will be developed with consensus Existing providers dont support Housing First Why Housing First?  Sobriety vs Recovery Why is it a Health Safety Net Council issue?  Save taxpayers, jails, hospitals & mental health provider $ - do more with existing $
  3. 3. Pathways to Housing – NY - creatorPathways to Housing was founded by Dr. Sam Tsemberis in 1992, and is widely credited as being the originator of the Housing First model of addressing homelessness among people with psychiatric disabilities.The Housing First model is simple: provide housing first, and then combine that housing with supportive treatment services in the areas of mental and physical health, substance abuse, education, and employment. Housing is provided in apartments scattered throughout a community. This "scattered site" model fosters a sense of home and self-determination, and it helps speed the reintegration of Pathways’ clients into the community.
  4. 4. Housing First Works Comparing PSH to Housing First programs  Pathways to Housing  100,000 Homes Campaign Choose focus population  Chronic often first – prioritize as to vulnerability  Health & wellness, safety, prevention of deaths  Our model – under-served populations Funding  PSH traditionally HUD voucher based  Ours, combination faith-based, SIB & L3C (hybrid)
  5. 5. Sample results from other communities, states 98% reduction in emergency room visits and 62% reduction in emergency room costs (Mondello 2007) 95% cut in mental health inpatient hospitalizations (Moore 2006) 71% decrease in Medicaid reimbursement costs (Andersen 2000). 97% reduction in nursing home nights (Nogaski 2009) 84% reduction in tenants “days spent in correctional facilities” (Culhane 2002) 87% decrease in sobering center admissions (Larimer 2009) 84% reduction in detoxification costs (Perlman 2006) (For more examples from Denver, see Graph #1).Caution: These statistics & data are not for Savannah – our stats must be developedindependently & together in order to quantify our own savings & costs for models thatwe all agree on!
