For this project, Neighborworks Great Falls, in partnership with Benefits Health Systems and with the guidance of the Corporation for Supportive Housing, will develop a plan that uses data integration and hospital analysis along with community resources and program coordination to drive investments in supportive housing. Supportive housing will be designed to serve the population that is most likely to be homeless or near homeless, and who face health obstacles including mental illness and substance use disorders. The project’s goal is to give community service providers guidance in identifying cost-effective ways to improve outcomes for vulnerable people by providing supportive services and secure housing.
