Upcoming Listening Sessions Explore Medical Fragility

Communities across the country use standardized tools to prioritize individuals for housing. The HCH community has long had concerns with how tools in use do not adequately assess medical fragility and have bias in scoring. The Council is embarking on work to identify alternative means of assessing medical fragility to improve housing prioritization processes. Join us for one of two listening sessions to share what you have seen in your community.
