USICH’s recent brief, Strategies to Address the Intersection of the Opioid Crisis and Homelessness, was developed in partnership with our federal interagency working group focused on this issue.

These articles and interviews explore how different agencies and organizations support successful housing outcomes and recovery for people who have experienced the effects of both opioid use disorders and homelessness.
