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.
Cathedral Square and SASH staff recently had the opportunity to welcome several representatives from CMMI at Allard Square in South Burlington. State partners from the Agency of Human Services also participated and provided additional context about SASH from their perspective as a great model serving the state.
In the spring and summer of 2023, SASH teams around the state worked to address the opioid epidemic effecting our communities by learning about opioid addiction, sharing information with participants, and employing harm reduction strategies.
