What is ACCESS Harris County?
Accessing Coordinated Care and Empowering Self Sufficiency (ACCESS) Harris County, is an integrated care-coordination model that works to improve outcomes for vulnerable individuals through a multi-interdepartmental disciplinary team or care coordination team. The team will focus on supporting clients holistically, addressing multiple needs that ensure better outcomes and greater stability.
ACCESS Harris County aims to improve the lives of residents who are experiencing hardship and facing health challenges (physical and/or mental), financial and housing needs, substance abuse, and social inequity.
ACCESS will initially focus on the following populations:
- Homeless individuals with physical or behavioral health conditions
- Violence prevention
- Transitional age youth aging out of foster care system
