New ideas and innovations are the lifeblood of any organization and nowhere is that more evident that at Alliance. Here, you’ll discover a dynamic team of caring and highly-intelligent individuals working to improve the future of healthcare delivery, every day.

The Health and Housing Case Management Program is a partnership between Alliance, Duke University, and RHD North Carolina.

An Alliance study of health care costs at Duke University Hospital found that the vast majority of costs were driven by a fairly small number of people. After identifying those “heavy users,” RHD provided housing and case management — and quickly reduced hospitalizations by more than 40 percent.

“The Real World event is a great experiential opportunity for students to see what the responsibilities of adulthood are really like. By navigating through the stations, they will gain a new awareness of budgeting and making wise choices.”

Pamela Story, Cumberland County Social Services

Bridge housing supports a Housing First approach by providing safe and temporary housing for people who are actively seeking permanent supportive housing options and may face additional challenges. This 3-5 month “bridge to independence” program is intended for a more vulnerable population who are exiting jails and other institutions or living in long-term homelessness.

While in the program, a person is connected to additional services and community resources, receives assistance with housing search and navigation, and coaching to help increase their self-sufficiency whether it be employment, educational attainment, daily living skills, or budgeting.

The goal of the program is to help a person begin their journey of recovery and community living while putting all necessary wraparound services in place for them to be successful and live the lives they desire.

“Because of these amazing partnerships and the efforts of amazing people, over 30 individuals have increased stability in their lives and obtained permanent housing in just the first year and a half of this program!”

Nicholas Hobbs, RHD North Carolina
