We return this spring with a podcast reboot and begin with our Healthcare Justice Series with episodes that:

  • Focus on the social determinants of health 
  • And highlight the needs of communities and populations experiencing barriers to health care    

We begin the series with an exploration of The Housing First Model.



 The Housing First Model 

Housing First for the chronically homeless is premised on the notion that housing is a basic human right, and should not be denied to anyone, even if they are  abusing alcoholor other substances. 


The approach offers permanent, affordable housing as quickly as possible for individuals and families experiencing homelessness, and then provides the supportive services and connections (such as health care) at the community-level that are needed to sustain housing and avoid repeating cycles of homelessness.   


Housing First is currently endorsed by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessnessas a “best practice” for governments and service-agencies to use in their fight to end chronic homelessness in America and has been adapted in many countries across the world.    


Join me in the exploration of this health justice model of care as I talk with leaders in the US and abroad to better understand how existing policies drive system integration to support stable housing for the homeless.  


Stay Tuned!
