Alameda County Homeless Mortality
The Alameda County Health Care for the Homeless (ACHCH) and Community Assessment, Planning, and Evaluation (CAPE) teams have released the County's first-ever Homeless Mortality Report, a retrospective report on homeless deaths from 2018 to 2020 in Alameda County.
The reports seeks to accurately enumerate deaths among people experiencing homelessness to inform policies and practices to reduce preventable deaths, and to reduce the harm that preventable deaths create for families, friends, caregivers, and the community. This review will help our health and housing partners develop interventions to reduce deaths among those experiencing homelessness.
We believe no one should die alone or unknown in homelessness.

These efforts are aligned with the National Health Care for the Homeless Council’s Homeless Mortality Working Group.
