In 2013, the Central Florida region was ranked worst among the nation’s midsized cities for its chronically homeless population. In 2014, Florida Hospital made the largest one-time private commitment of $6 million to end chronic homelessness in Central Florida history. Central Florida leaders leveraged this contribution to launch a campaign to end chronic homelessness in the region by transitioning to the “housing-first” model, including an investment of over $4 million from the City of Orlando.   The results are 168 housed since September 2015 through that Florida Hospital’s funding and an additional 400 chronically homeless Central Floridians were housed as a result of the regional housing-first efforts.  In this session you will hear why making investment in Housing First makes economic sense for local governments and for Florida’s hospitals.
