(Winter 2018 - Winter 2019)
This project is an evaluation of an expandable and replicable private/public partnership pilot project to maximize health care coordination for pregnant and parenting mothers residing in supportive housing, a population that has experienced the complex health impact of homelessness. This is in collaboration among Housing Opportunities for Women (HOW), the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Loyola University's Center for Urban Research and Learning (CURL). The program evaluation completed by CURL is a key component of this pilot project by HOW and CDPH. The evaluation is trifold: (1) to understand the process a public health entity engages in to secure coordination with a private non-profit supportive housing agency; (2) to understand nuances of care coordination for moms, infants and toddlers within this context and (3) to study the impact of infant and toddler-focused health education services provided within a supportive housing environment.
