Given the sheer scale and scope of diverse cross-system efforts and the importance of disseminating promising practices, CLPHA launched the Housing Is Clearinghouse (HousingIs.org).
The Clearinghouse helps organizations and experts foster collaboration and partnerships across systems and sectors, as well as learn from promising and evidence-based practices. Everyone is welcome, from researchers and health executives to educators and community leaders.
The platform helps facilitate coordination between experts, encourages collaboration, expands partnerships, and serves as a virtual gathering place for communities of practice across systems and sectors. CLPHA seeks to make HousingIs.org a one-stop-shop for policymakers, practitioners, and other decision-makers to learn about cross-system innovation and evidence-based programs with housing stability as a cornerstone social determinant.
Users can join communities that have issue- and population-specific “newsfeeds” of resources. They can share their research and toolkits with others with similar goals, as well as connect with new partners to build on existing work
