Supportive Housing for Frequent Users of County Systems

CSH and NACo Work With Criminal Justice System

CSH and NACo Work With Criminal Justice SystemOn June 7-8, 2012, the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) and the National Association of Counties (NACo) co-hosted a day-and-a-half long forum to showcase how counties can advance supportive housing initiatives for individuals involved in the criminal justice system and other county public systems. Held in Minneapolis, MN, county representatives from more than 20 counties and 11 states attended.

The forum highlighted how the Frequent Users Systems Engagement (FUSE) model and its three essential pillars – data driven problem solving, policy and systems reform, and targeted housing and services – can help communities break the cycle of incarceration and homelessness among individuals with behavioral health needs.
