The Coalition has been delivering healthcare for the homeless in downtown Denver for more than 30 years.
The Coalition’s approach to health care is centered on the patient, is driven by a multi-disciplinary team, and is trauma-informed. All personnel recognize that the patient must be an active participant in the development of an integrated care plan. Health care providers see the patient as a unique individual, not as a diagnosis or disease. Case managers, patient navigators, consumer peer mentors, outreach workers, others providing enabling services, and licensed or registered staff, work together with the person seeking care in order to reduce or eliminate barriers to healing and recovery. The Coalition’s health care service system includes preventive, episodic, and ongoing care for acute and chronic conditions.
In 2013, the Coalition provided integrated health care services to 13,323 men, women and children, ranging in age from infancy to over 85. Common diagnoses include hypertension, diabetes and asthma. Frequently, homeless patients suffer from multiple diagnoses making treatment and care significantly more challenging than for people who are not homeless.
Overall, the life expectancy for most Americans is almost 80 years—yet, for those who experience life on the streets, the probable lifespan is between 42 and 52 years. Young women (aged 18 to 34) are four-times more likely to die prematurely than their housed counterparts. We strive each day to better these devastating odds.
