SASH by the Numbers
November 2023 Snapshot
For over a decade, SASH has been improving health outcomes for older adults by connecting them to community-based supportive health and social services. Now, a new pilot program called SASH for All is bringing these services and resources to a broader population of Windham & Windsor Housing Trust (WWHT) residents.
Former Cathedral Square CEO Nancy Eldridge has been working with California Integrated Care at Home (CICH) to bring the SASH model to California. We recently had the opportunity to host representatives from various organizations in California who are planning to pilot SASH in Los Angeles County.
