The Health and Housing Starter Kit by Change Lab Solutions provides approaches for building stronger community collaborations between the healthcare and housing service sectors. Housing has been identified as a major factor in the social determinants of health, and as such has heavy implications on the life and success of individuals and families alike. This report shows the link between health outcomes and how safe, affordable housing can be the solution.
Through three U.S. case studies, the report shows what collective impact processes have been successful, how they were formed, and how their collaborative efforts have benefited their communities. The report outlines 12 steps for developing organizational partnerships, which include finding organizations nearby with similar missions, talking through capacities and limitations, and establishing performance management frameworks, tools, and funding streams.
