Many of the underlying causes of homelessness are social factors such as unstable housing, unemployment and underemployment, and general economic instability. These factors cannot only trap someone in a perpetual cycle of homelessness, but can lead to a cascade of health problems. To truly meet the complex needs of individuals experiencing homelessness, health care teams benefit from legal expertise to help navigate problems that go well beyond the clinic’s doors. This webinar will focus on how medical-legal partnerships can address the civil legal needs of people who are homeless. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about a Health Care for the Homeless-Medical-Legal Partnership Learning Collaborative that will be formed in December 2018.
