Resource Summary: Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) providers are uniquely challenged to effectively address the health care needs of individuals who face extraordinary hurdles to managing their care. This is complicated by the difficulty of determining the impact of individual programs and services, planning the best use of limited resources, and presenting a compelling, data-driven argument to potential funders. The HCH Costing Tool was created by economists and researchers Donald Shepard and Cynthia Tschampl at Brandeis University to address this issue and help HCH grantees conduct a cost-benefit analysis of existing and potential programs.
