Cooperative Health Care for the Homeless Network
In operation since 1987, the Network was originally funded as one of 19 demonstration projects privately funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Pew Charitable Trusts with a focus on primary medical care and case management. In 1988, Title VI of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act created the Homeless Health Care (HCH) program under Section 340 of the Public Health Service Act. The McKinney Act also provided funding for programs such as emergency food/shelter, transitional/ long-term housing, mental health services, and education/job training. In 1993, supported by the Bureau of Primary Health Care, under Section 330(h) of the Public Health Service Act (with Community and Migrant Health Centers), the Bureau of Primary Health Care funded 10 Homeless Health Care (HCH) outreach projects for homeless children and their families. In 1996, the Health Center Consolidation Act put HCH programs under Section 330(h) of the PHS Act (with Community and Migrant Health Centers).
Los Angeles County is composed of eight (8) health service planning areas (SPAs) and NEVHC has CHCHN service providers serving homeless residents in all eight of these SPAs.
