Delivering Whole Person Care Spotlight: Placer County

Whole Person Care (WPC) is a five-year county-led pilot program – funded by $100 million in state funding – to provide coordinated health, behavioral health and social services for at-risk clients. Specific target populations include individuals recently released from institutions or incarceration, those with mental illness or substance use disorders, and those who are currently homeless or at-risk of homelessness. There are currently 24 WPC pilot programs across the state led by 26 counties.
“Placer County gave us the strength to move forward. They helped us out when we needed it and they were there for us."
- Donovan, Program Participant
In Placer County, a concerted effort is underway to focus on chronically homeless individuals who have traditionally needed assistance from a variety of agencies and programs. And this effort is working; county staff are helping individuals find housing, linking them to needed resources – and changing their lives.
