Substance use is disproportionately high among unhoused individuals. LifeMoves (one of our partners) has been developing a program to mitigate substance use disorder through education and counseling.

"The ongoing collaboration with the Stanford Housing Equity Project provides incredible and vital expertise in clinical care, educational programing, and data-driven program design."

Dr. Brian Greenberg, Vice President of LifeMoves
