Housing Services

Housing is Healthcare

In Community Health, we know that access to basic life necessities is a significant indicator of sustaining a healthy life.  Housing is one of the most basic needs a person has, and maintaining stable housing impacts nearly every facet of an individual’s life.  In response to the needs of those with health conditions who are struggling to maintain safe, affordable housing, IU Health facilitates a number of housing programs designed to assist individuals in achieving and maintaining self-sufficiency, and provide a range of services from homeless prevention to permanent housing.

The programs we operate are specific to targeted populations who may experience difficulty maintaining self-sufficiency.  In addition to the financial assistance provided through federal grant funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, clients who engage in our programs are provided ongoing, intensive housing case management to address the causes of their housing crisis.
