Guidance and Information For Shelter Providers

ICHH has been working closely with DHCD and MassHealth to better align expectations for acute care hospitals, behavioral health facilities, and individual shelters in order to decrease the number of individuals who are discharged from these facilities directly to shelters.

This web page provides shelters with information about these efforts and Interagency Council on Housing and Homelessness (ICHH) and the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD)’s expectations and requirements for homeless shelter providers’ collaboration with hospital discharge staff.
