Making the Connection: Improving the Relationship Between Shelters and Health Centers

Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | 2-3 p.m. CT

Join us for another session in our CME-accredited 2018 Spring Virtual Training webinar series, “Responding to Crises.”

With a multitude of case management obligations, constant staff turnover, and an important emphasis on housing first – it can be difficult for emergency shelter staff to prioritize the health care of their clients. The National Health Care for the Homeless Council’s TennCare Shelter Enrollment Project has developed ways of reaching out to emergency shelters and bridging the gap between shelter and clinic for both staff and residents. From regional trainings to Medicaid enrollment – learn effective strategies to strengthen your relationship with those who provide direct service to the homeless community in your region.
