Annual Report Spotlight: Impact was chosen as one of two agencies to provide behavioral healthcare coordination services at all public housing communities in the Housing Authority of Cook County (HACC) properties.

Embedding the behavioral health care coordinators in HACC communities brings mental health care directly to residents. Impact staff are coordinating gatherings to get to know the residents.

Nick, an Impact Clinical Case Manager, met Sima, a HACC resident. Sima stated that “interacting with people like Nick is providing a social outlet for residents—especially a lot of people who don’t have family or are lonely. These services and access to support helps.”
