April 13, 2022

The CCUSA Healthy Housing Initiative (HHI) pilot program combines healthcare and housing services in five cities to help the chronically homeless get off and remain off the streets. 


The five-year Healthy Housing Initiative has been piloted in five cities – Detroit, Las Vegas, Portland (Oregon), St. Louis and Spokane – where Catholic Charities staff are developing housing units, cultivating partnerships with Catholic healthcare systems, training case managers and engaging clients.  

Despite a global pandemic and numerous other adversities, the HHI program reached significant milestones by its second year. For instance, 231 women, men and children – approximately 25% of the overall goal – have been housed and served utilizing the “housing first” approach.
