The 22,000-square-foot facility is the second and final phase final phase of Detroit’s new $22 million Healthy Housing Campus, the Detroit Healthy Housing Center pairs emergency shelter with health care and support services to help end chronic homelessness in region.
The DHHC will provide low-barrier emergency shelter to 56 adults, focusing on the medically at risk, and will offer transformative health and social services for its residents and neighbors. It will offer services to help homeless individuals transition into permanent housing, a 17-bed medical respite for homeless individuals to receive continuing care post-hospitalization, a fully integrated health care clinic open to the public and other on-site wraparound services, including job readiness training. The health care clinic will be accessible to the community for primary care, behavioral health, dental services and a pharmacy.
This unique, one‐of‐a‐kind center will provide a continuum of care within one campus, a wider and deeper approach to service than NSO has ever addressed before. The campus and its programs are designed to deliver whole‐person care, promote a healthy transition to the next step toward housing stability and sustainability, provide supportive services that will focus on ending homelessness for the people we serve and uplift our entire community.
