Health Plan of San Joaquin Announces $15 Million Investment to Locally Address Homelessness
(French Camp, CA) — Health Plan of San Joaquin (HPSJ), a local health plan that serves more than 400,000 Medi-Cal beneficiaries in San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties, announces a $15 million investment to reduce and prevent homelessness across the community. Through this investment, HPSJ will partner to help fund the construction of shelters and permanent supportive housing units for those experiencing homelessness in cities that include Stockton, Tracy, and Modesto. Additionally, HPSJ’s investment will support innovative street medicine programs that position health care providers to directly deliver care outdoors to individuals who are experiencing homelessness.
“This investment, unanimously and enthusiastically approved by our governing Commission, will allow HPSJ and our partners to better meet the needs of our most vulnerable members while addressing challenges related to homelessness in our community,” says HPSJ’s Chief Executive Officer, Michael Schrader.
“HPSJ has proudly served the Central Valley for more than 25 years,” Schrader continues, “and we are strong in our commitment to improve the health of our community through collaboration on the launch of these new housing and homelessness initiatives.”
