Community & State is partnering with communities to tackle health and socioeconomic challenges through social impact investing. The approach involves investing in community organizations to increase their capacity to meet community needs and accelerate program impact. The Just in Reach Pay for Success program is one example of this work in action.
To discover how local leaders can leverage investments to address their biggest challenges, watch the video below that highlights the Los Angeles County health-based housing project Just in Reach. The Just in Reach program provides permanent supportive housing and support services to chronically homeless, seriously mentally ill individuals and addresses the connection between mental illness, recidivism and homelessness.
"The real return on investment here...it’s the fact that the county will continue to see and believe housing is a form of health care and will end homelessness for these individuals and improve their health." - Andrea Illoulian, Senior Program Officer, Domestic Programs, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation
