The Project 

ChangeLab Solutions conducted the BLOCK Project, a unique effort to  focus on local institutions working at the intersection of health and housing: hospitals, public housing authorities, and public health agencies. The project studies how each type of institution leverages their substantial resources and wide reach to improve housing policies and health outcomes in 3 municipalities:  Denver, Baltimore, and Alameda County, CA

Our Role 

While at the City of Denver, Gretchen participated on the Denver team to contribute research, policies and strategies to reduce inequities from the impacts of lack of affordable housing and strengthen local partnerships with healthcare organizations to improve health.
