From their inception as demonstration projects in 19851, Health Care for the Homeless
programs have looked to academic partners to contribute resources to assist them in
providing health care to homeless people in their communities. The last decade has
signified an era of new efforts to create constructive, mutually beneficial and enduring
interactions through formal partnerships between communities and their academic
institutions. Public and private funders and policymakers have provided incentives for
these partnerships by creating entities like the Corporation for National and Community
Service2 or by requiring collaborative approaches in grant initiatives. The informal
relationships created by those early Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) projects have
blossomed into formal agreements and the institutionalization of homeless-specific courses in academic curricula.(Authors)
