- Successful strategies for creating and sustaining Housing First permanent supportive housing in both single-site and scattered-site locations.
- Effective methods for forging long-term linkages between federally qualified health centers, healthcare for the homeless providers, managed care organizations and the multiple case management and housing organizations that are associated with their respective homeless continuums of care.
