POLICY BRIEF: Health Conditions Among Unsheltered Adults in the U.S.
TECHNICAL APPENDIX: Technical Appendix: Health Conditions Among Unsheltered Adults in the U.S.
PRESS RELEASE: Health Conditions Among Unsheltered Adults in the U.S.
The California Policy Lab analyzed responses from more than 64,000 adults in the United States experiencing both sheltered and unsheltered homelessness. Unsheltered adults are far more likely to report suffering from chronic health conditions, mental health issues, and experiences with trauma and substance abuse problems as compared to homeless people who are living in shelters. As policymakers design interventions for unsheltered individuals and balance investments in emergency housing and permanent housing, they will need to consider whether emergency housing is adequate or appropriate for a highly vulnerable population, half of whom are trimorbid.
The Home Sonoma County Leadership Council is the primary decision-making body for the Sonoma County homeless system of care. The Sonoma County Community Development Commission (CDC), the current CoC lead agency, will serve as the interim lead agency until the Leadership Council officially selects an entity to serve as the lead agency.
