DETROIT – December 18, 2023 – CCA Health Michigan, a mission-driven healthcare services organization that offers high-quality health plans designed for older adults and individuals with the most significant needs, today announced a donation to HOPE Shelters, a community-based organization that offers safe and judgment-free shelter, innovative programs, and public advocacy to end homelessness. Funds will also support the HOPE Recuperative Shelter, which provides specialized services, clinical oversight, and transitional care for people discharged from a medical or psychiatric hospital setting.
“CCA Health Michigan is committed to help reduce the devasting impact of homelessness and housing insecurity on the health and well-being of our communities,” said Brian Keane, General Manager, CCA Health Michigan. “We’re proud to support HOPE Shelters. Their innovative programs help to bridge a critical gap, ensuring that vulnerable Michiganders have the resources and support they need to recover and transition back to a safe home environment.”
Beyond shelter, food, and coordination of housing services, patients who stay at the HOPE Recuperative Shelter also receive coordination of primary care and behavioral health care.
“The team at HOPE Shelters is incredibly proud of the impact we’ve made across our communities in Pontiac and Oakland County, and we’re grateful for healthcare organizations like CCA Health Michigan that understand the value of our programs,” Brian Wright, Executive Director at HOPE Shelters. “With this support, we’re able to coordinate high-quality medical, behavioral health, and social support services that can lead to long-lasting recovery.”
This year, CCA Health Michigan also partnered with the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, Gleaners Community Food Bank, and CSI Support and Development to help fund food security, nutrition education, and healthy aging iniativies across Southeast Michigan.
