The public healthcare coverage, services and benefits discussed in a new brief from CSH can make the difference between a life in the community in housing or bouncing between homelessness and various institutions. A variety of services may be available in your community to assist older adults, but if the potential recipient does not have the public healthcare coverage (Medicare or Medicaid or both) that covers these services, the individual is paying high costs out of pocket or cannot access the care at all.

Housing Opportunities for Women (HOW) recently hosted Building Opportunities, a panel discussion with four experts in conversation about what works and what is next in affordable housing development. The panel, including CSH Managing Director Katrina Van Valkenburgh, offered attendees unique insights into the ways corporate, nonprofit, and government entities are working together to solve the current housing affordability crisis.
