Findings and Lessons Learned
These webinar recordings are from the SPNS Initiative's end-of-project meeting and highlight preliminary findings and lessons learned.
Achieving success in housing, employment, and HIV primary care requires an intentional and coordinated effort, as they are interdependent upon one another. HIV care, housing, and employment must be addressed collectively for people with HIV (PWH) to achieve viral suppression. As part of the HRSA/SPNS Initiative: Improving Health Outcomes through the Coordination of Supportive Employment and Housing Services, twelve demonstration sites developed innovative practices for providing integrated, quality HIV and behavioral health care while simultaneously addressing the unmet need for housing, employment, and other social services that compete with health care. Between 2017-2020, this initiative served over 1000 PWH who experienced homelessness or housing instability and un/underemployment.
In this webinar, we will share an overview of the initiative and findings from the multi-site evaluation. Two demonstration sites will also share their approaches to partnering with other locally and federally funded agencies to improve housing stability and employment opportunities for PWH.
