Collaborators Problem-Solve to Bridge a Critical Gap

When the Norfolk General Hospital Team overseeing the Addictive Supportive Housing Program was confronted with the imminent loss of several private apartments crucial to the success of their program participants, they realized the urgency of the situation and the necessity of community collaboration to find a solution.

Matt Bowen, CEO of HNHC, acknowledged the participants’ significant contributions, stating, “Their insights on the importance of community integration in recovery were invaluable.”

As a result of this successful collaboration, two homes owned by HNHC will be deeply retrofitted to accommodate up to 8 program participants. “Renovations are well underway and will be ready for move-in later this summer,” added Matt Bowen, “resulting in an innovative response to a community need.”
