Changing the Path to Effective Health Care 

Launched in 2012, Health Guardians is an intensive and integrated care model that seeks to address and remove barriers to effective health care. Those barriers can be any mix of social, economic, or health-related issues. Health Guardians seeks out the most frequent emergency room users and works with them to map out a more effective care plan, often improving self-sufficiency along the way.

While working with Health Guardians, Ben Wortham found that this method of helping the poor with health care naturally lent itself to also housing the homeless. Wortham discovered, “Housing is the foundation of health care. You have to house them first for effective health care to really be possible." Read the full story on Wortham and his team's innovative new health care and housing model.
