What We Do

Homeless to Home (H2H) has a bold mission to end homelessness in the communities we serve. And to do so, requires a sound business model

Our Mission

Ending Homelessness

Ending homeless is a noble objective indeed, and it is what drives our company every day.

Our teams of clinicians and social workers employ rich data analytics and battle-tested programmatic solutions to further our mission of housing every homeless member we serve. As such, over the last four years, we have housed nearly half of our homeless Medicaid beneficiaries in the following communities: Washington D.C., Los Angeles County, and the Bay Area of Northern California.

We know that if we are laser-focused on our socially conscious mission to end homelessness, then our business conscious vision to drive improved healthcare costs and quality metrics for Medicaid plans will follow causatively. In fact, as you can see from the chart below,

as we help our members get off the streets and into homes, annual cost per beneficiary is dramatically reduced. Drilling into the data, this is a direct result of lower hospital admissions, fewer hospital readmissions, and better compliance to pharmaceutical regimen. Moreover, every housed member has a primary care physician and social worker that helps guide their primary care, improving early detection and prevention of more complex and costly therapeutic interventions.

Our Mantra

Improving Lives

Homelessness is the leading social determinant of poor health outcomes. And as such, it is not surprising to most that people who are on the streets have a measurably lower quality of life (QoL) as compared to those who are housed. So, what can be done then to improve upon their QoL? This is a pressing question that our collective teams at Homeless to Home (H2H) is challenged with daily.

To better understand how to improve their lives, it is important to understand, from the perspective of the homeless, what common themes consistently are raised as leading factors that negatively impact their QoL. Researchers have identified the following six:

  • Needed wellness and health services including health, fitness, and addiction programs
  • Quality living conditions, and more specifically, permanent housing solutions
  • Necessary money and resources to survive
  • Connectedness to family and friends
  • Steady employment
  • Basic entertainment activities that can distract from unsheltered life on the streets such as TV, books, movies, travelling, and music.

Additionally, homeless adults and youth consistently voice their concerns about the stigma of being “categorized and labeled as homeless.” These negative stereotypes exacerbate their already difficult situation and further contribute to poor QoL scores. Moreover, this homeless stigma is propagated by the same agencies that are designed to help them. We at H2H, on the other hand, listen intently to the needs and concerns of our homeless members. We recognize that these individuals happen to be having difficulties in their lives at this moment in time, but that their circumstances will get better as we work with them to get out of and into a better place in life.

Our teams of support specialist, start from a place of hope, and they consistently dignify their situation, knowing that improving their QoL will also improve their health. In doing so, we have made dramatic improvements to their quality of life—above and beyond placement in stable homes. In fact, our homeless beneficiaries report higher self-worth scores as measured by in-house surveys, leading to a substantially better outlook on life.
