Collective Investing for Greater Community Impact: The Oregon Experience

Thursday, May 17, 2018: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM
Regency Room (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
Last year, 6 health systems in Oregon collaborated with Central City Concern, a Healthcare for the Homeless program and affordable housing developer, to invest $21.5 million in 379 units of housing and a new clinic in Portland.  This workshop will provide an overview of both the process and outcome of this “Housing Is Health” partnership, detailed by its chief architects.  Participants will gain insight into root causes and downstream effects of the homelessness crisis in Portland, coupled with strategies to organize (and move to action) health systems around the idea of collective investment in housing and comprehensive models of care.
