Recognizing an unmet need for toiletries and household products among clients, AccessHealth Spartanburg (AHS) stocks a closet where eligible clients can “shop” for items. Clients can shop when they first enroll and at targeted intervals, plus they can earn coupons to shop for items by attending appointments, meeting with case managers, and/or achieving health-related milestones. This builds trusting relationships between clients and staff and meets basic client needs. AHS is a participant in the Transforming Complex Care initiative, a national multi-site demonstration made possible through support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
