Data were collected on these residents from Medicaid, mental health hospitals, substance use treatment, prisons, and various county jails and hospitals.

The study notes a dramatic shift in the use of state services pre- to post-housing. Among the key findings:

  • The number of people using state mental health hospitals dropped 90 percent from pre- to post-supportive housing. The number of overnight stays in mental health hospitals went down by almost 100 percent.

  • Medicaid services saw a major shift from a high-reliance on expensive inpatient/acute services before supportive housing to less expensive outpatient/preventative services after.
  • Nursing home stays decreased by 97 percent, saving over $230,000
