The combination of many failed systems causes people to lose their housing, including the healthcare industry and its complexity of insurance and the patchwork of so-called safety-net programs.
Join this discussion to explore the range of intersections between youth homelessness and healthcare, focusing on health policy that would improve young people’s housing security and what healthcare providers need to support young people at risk of homelessness. Ample time will be dedicated to group discussion with attendees, so come prepared to discuss your own funding at this intersection.
- Describe the insurance landscape and health infrastructure affecting youth and young adults experiencing housing insecurity.
- Describe how health care providers (hospitals, FQHCs, etc.) can screen for housing insecurity and connect people to housing resources
- Understand the distinct health needs of LGBTQIA+ young people
- Define at least one strategy funders should consider related to youth homelessness and health
- Aruna Krishnakumar, Health Center Director - Brooklyn, Callen-Lorde Community Health Center
- Barbara DiPietro, Sr. Director of Policy, National Health Care for the Homeless Council
- Michael Durham, Director of Networks, Funders Together to End Homelessness (moderator)
