Aging, Health, & Homelessness: Findings from CASPEH and HOPE HOME

Virtual Event


Half of people experiencing homelessness are older than 50, and almost half of older homeless adults became homeless for the first time after they turned 50. Join the Benioff Homelessness & Housing Initiative for a webinar to learn about the causes and consequences of homelessness in late life. Margot Kushel, MD, and other BHHI presenters will discuss findings from the Health Outcomes of People Experiencing Homelessness in Older Middle Age (HOPE HOME) project—a longitudinal cohort study following older adults experiencing homelessness in Oakland, CA, and the California Statewide Study of People Experiencing Homelessness (CASPEH)—the largest representative study of homelessness in the United States since the mid-1990s.
