Dignity Health Awards $1M to Housing Matters to Build Permanent Supportive Housing

Dignity Health and Housing Matters recently announced that Dignity Health is awarding a $1M Homeless Health Initiative grant to Housing Matters to build Harvey West Studios, 120 units of affordable housing for those with a history of chronic homelessness.

The grant from Dignity Health works in tandem with the 2021 Building with Purpose campaign to provide significant funding for moving the project forward.

“As health care providers, we do all we can to mitigate the health impacts of our patients who are experiencing homelessness, but no amount of health care can substitute for stable housing,” says Dominican Hospital President Nanette Mickiewicz, MD. “We are proud of our longstanding partnership with Housing Matters as they provide innovative solutions to this pressing challenge.”
