A report prepared by JSI Research & Training Institute, titled Integrating Housing Strategies with Health: An Opportunity to Advance Whole-Person Care in California.
The wildfires and the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) in Northern California have caused major disruptions for Bay Area residents. To date, over 180,000 people are displaced from their homes and nearly 1 million are without power. These events burden people with the least access to resources and barrier to mobility including 1) people with disabilities, 2) immigrants and farm workers, 3) low-income residents, and 4) older adults and seniors.
