Flyer for SV at Home HAC event

Housing is one the most fundamental social determinants of health. Numerous studies have shown that having a safe, stable home is key to health and well-being. Research has also demonstrated that providing our unhoused neighbors with a secure home has a host of health benefits, such as increased access to essential medical care and avoidance of costly emergency room visits. Unfortunately, systemic inequities have resulted in deeply unequal access to these resources, disproportionately impacting BIPOC communities across the Bay Area. Join SV@Home and our special guest Darris Young from the Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII) for a discussion on the connection between housing, health, and equity. We’ll discuss how housing shapes our health, how we can make the connection between the importance of affordable housing and a healthy community for all, and opportunities to simultaneously advance housing justice and racial equity.
