Description:
It’s become common knowledge in the health care industry that housing stability is a key factor in a person’s overall health and well-being — and that addressing housing stability can help lower health care costs. Many health systems are making investments and supporting innovations that seek to address Oregon’s affordable housing crisis. Health systems are increasingly engaged in discussions on housing funding and policy, as well as making direct investments in housing development, services and/or supports for vulnerable people in our communities.
