When people experience substance use, mental health issues, and housing instability, having access to available, high-quality, and flexible service and support options is essential. Many communities and systems have a limited continuum of service options and are often unprepared to meet the needs of everyone who needs help–in ways that are most useful and relevant to their lives. These challenges are worsened by structural and systematic racism, mass incarceration, stigma, and other forms of discrimination and injustice.
C4 Innovations advances equitable access to recovery, wellness, and housing stability for people who are systematically marginalized. When all people—regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity—are able to access and engage in quality care, the results are healthier individuals, families, and communities.
