Communities waste billions on uncoordinated and expensive service responses as people without housing frequently cycle between shelters, hospitals, jails, and the streets. Your community can end this costly revolving door by housing and helping those in need, and improving overall quality of life. How? By being selected to participate in the new, one-time only FUSE (Frequent Users Systems Engagement) Learning Community from CSH.
CSH FUSE is a proven, effective model identifying your frequent users of jails, shelters, hospitals and/or other crisis public services and matching them with supportive housing, an evidence-based solution that leads to better health and other good outcomes for people homeless and disabled. Tenants are provided very affordable housing with support services, all aimed at promoting stability that significantly reduces returns to jail and homelessness, and a reliance on emergency health services.
The FUSE supportive housing framework has been implemented in more than 30 communities across the country and is currently being planned in another 15.
In addition to monthly office hours with CSH FUSE experts, the Learning Community will offer five virtual trainings held between September 2018 to January 2019. Topics covered by the virtual trainings will include: FUSE stakeholder engagement, cross systems data matching/data driven targeting, supportive housing resource creation and scaling, and more. Hands-on guest speakers from FUSE communities will be featured whenever possible. Trainings will be interactive and offer opportunities for peer discussion among communities.
CSH anticipates selecting 15-20 communities to participate in the Learning Community. If your community is interested in applying, please click this link and complete our survey by Thursday, September 6, 2018, 7pm CT. Successful applicants will be notified and announced by CSH soon thereafter. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
