The Social Determinants of Health
First Step House takes into consideration the social determinants of health when providing care for our clients. A few of the social determinants associated with poor health include high-risk health behaviors (substance use, smoking, etc.), food insecurity, housing instability, poor income, and lack of family and social support, which the majority of our clients experience. We integrate evidence-based services, social support, and care coordination to help our clients lead the healthiest lives possible.
