What does it take to house and support familiar faces? Familiar faces are individuals who frequently cycle through jails, homeless shelters, emergency departments and other crisis services. Familiar faces often have complex health and behavioral health conditions that can result in overuse of these costly services without improving their situations, leaving communities paying for poor outcomes. In response, many counties are developing coordinated continuums of care to address the systemic and individual challenges associated with multiple systems involvement. One of the most important tools for counties to effectively improve long-term outcomes is housing, and in particular supportive housing. Join NACo for a panel discussion with experts and county leaders who have developed innovative funding models to support housing programs and facilities for familiar faces within their communities.
