Tackling Homelessness: A Unique Partnership
Sept. 19, 2018

Participants joined us for a presentation by Paul Lambros, Executive Director for Plymouth Housing, and Darcy Jaffe, Chief Nursing Officer for Harborview Medical Center, as they shared an overview of our area’s homelessness epidemic, what is being done about it and a special tour of Plymouth’s newest property.

Plymouth and Harborview Medical Center have partnered to provide residents with on-site nursing, integrated medical services and mental health and chemical dependency services. Additionally, participants learned how Plymouth and Harborview are supporting people to move in to stable, permanent housing, leaving behind homelessness and expensive hospital settings.
