Proposed Project: Evaluation of the Health Care for the Homeless Respite Pilot Initiative—New
The Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC), Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA), proposes to conduct an evaluation of the Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) Respite Pilot Initiative. Data will be collected from the ten HCH grantees participating in the Pilot Initiative. The evaluation will be developed and conducted by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council through a cooperative agreement with the BPHC. The focus of the evaluation will be on assessing the effect of respite services on the health of homeless people as well as looking at any differences in outcomes based on client or program characteristics. The evaluation will be conducted throughout the three-year period of the Pilot Initiative.
