Show Me Healthy Housing Year-Two Evaluation Report

Show_Me_Healthy_Housing_1.jpg

This report updates the progress and early outcomes for four supportive housing projects funded by the Missouri Foundation for Health as part of its Show Me Healthy Housing program. The report updates the initial evaluation report from 2016. It details the implementation of supportive housing for all sites and interim outcomes on housing stability, income, health status, healthcare utilization and costs for projects that have served tenants for at-least 12 months. Most sites struggled with securing funding for long-term rental subsidies and case management, but the report finds positive outcomes for housing stability and reductions in ER usage and costs.

We joined Funders Together because we believe in the power of philanthropy to play a major role in ending homelessness, and we know we have much to learn from funders across the country.

-Christine Marge, Director of Housing and Financial Stability at United Way of Greater Los Angeles

I am thankful for the local partnerships here in the Pacific Northwest that we’ve been able to create and nurture thanks to the work of Funders Together. Having so many of the right players at the table makes our conversations – and all of our efforts – all the richer and more effective.

-David Wertheimer, Deputy Director at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Very often a lack of jobs and money is not the cause of poverty, but the symptom. The cause may lie deeper in our failure to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities, in a lack of education and training, in a lack of medical care and housing, in a lack of decent communities in which to live and bring up their children.

Funders Together has given me a platform to engage the other funders in my community. Our local funding community has improved greatly to support housing first models and align of resources towards ending homelessness.

-Leslie Strnisha, Vice President at Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland

Our family foundation convenes local funders and key community stakeholders around strategies to end homelessness in Houston. Funders Together members have been invaluable mentors to us in this effort, traveling to our community to share their expertise and examples of best practices from around the nation.
