Pacific Hospital Preservation & Development Authority: Bridging gaps in health care access

Project Details

 

The Passage Point Health Coordination program, a component of the Health Access Department, will serve persons facing homelessness working to regain custody of their children upon exiting the corrections system. The program’s mission is to increase effective access to health care services and promote management of individual and family health needs. The program will achieve this mission through health care navigation, utilization, education about health conditions, harm reduction skill building and individualized health case management. Through this project, they will provide on-site, tailored, flexible and client-driven health services for residents who would otherwise not be connected to a health system to manage their own health and support optimal health for their children. The YWCA will hire an on-site Health Coordinator who will become an integrated member of the Passage Point Resident Services Team.
