The National Health Care for the Homeless Council, in partnership with the Corporation for Supportive Housing, posted a summary of the 10th Decile Project. The project aims to serve frequent users of emergency services in Los Angeles County and connects those experiencing homelessness to housing and mainstream services. The profile provides an overview of the project’s goal, target population, strategies, outcomes, and challenges.

Some of the key findings from the project include:

  • 71% decrease in emergency room visits and 84% drop in hospital admissions.
  • 47% of the people involved were housed within six months and 98% housed in 2 years.
  • $54,106 cost reduction to hospitals, health centers, and public services per year.
