For someone experiencing chronic homelessness, “treating the whole person” means offering housing, medical, and behavioral health services in a coordinated manner. To be effective, most homeless service agencies cannot do it alone. This workshop features partnerships and other arrangements that bring together service strategies and funding streams in solutions to chronic homelessness.
