Over the past year, Dwelling Place has coordinated several meetings among leaders in the Heartside Neighborhood, facilitated by Public Sector Consultants, to address barriers and opportunities concerning behavioral health and economic development in Heartside. While the final report from this process provided many suggestions and areas of concentration, one initiative has garnered energy among behavioral health leaders in the neighborhood and is currently being pursued. Frequent Users Systems Engagement (FUSE) is a national model focused on the most frequent users of public and private health care, law enforcement, and social service programs. The FUSE model incorporates a local commitment for wrap around services that accompanies a housing placement to increase the likelihood for housing stability and reductions in use of expensive private and public services from law enforcement, first responders, emergency room providers and social service providers. Dwelling Place is collaborating with neighborhood partners to fund technical assistance from the Corporation for Supportive Housing, a national intermediary dedicated to eliminating homelessness with expertise on the FUSE model. Once funding for this contract is secured, Corporation for Supportive Housing will facilitate a planning and implementation process among Heartside social service providers, housing providers, healthcare providers, law enforcement, first responders, and other partners to bring a FUSE initiative to the neighborhood.
