Integrating Diversion into Maternal Health Programs in Yakima & Pierce Counties

Published: December 17, 2023

Building Changes successfully worked with two communities in Washington State on projects that integrated Diversion into Maternity Support Services (MSS) & Infant Case Management (ICM). The projects expanded the use of Diversion—a light touch and person-centered housing approach—to the maternal and child health sector with the goal of meeting the housing needs of pregnant and postpartum persons experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. The projects met people where they were, providing Diversion services where they were already receiving health services.

This three-page policy brief provides an overview of both projects, including who was served, key outcomes, and key learnings.
