Slowing the Revolving Door: Hospitals and Homeless Services Collaboration to Disrupt the Hospital-Homeless Cycle

Thursday, May 17, 2018: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Greenway D-G (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
Representatives from a hospital and a community-based organization (CBO) will present on their work together to pioneer a collaborative and effective relationship to slow the revolving door of the hospital to homeless cycle by providing medical, housing case management, and care coordination services to the most vulnerable and medically frail individuals experiencing homelessness. Facilitators will guide participants through a process similar to one used by the presenting organizations to establish and foster the CBO-hospital relationship in an interactive and fast-paced workshop focused on sharing and developing strategies that participants can begin incorporating into their direct service and administrative work immediately.
