This fact sheet outlines what we know about the prevalence and cost of family homelessness. Homeless families are, in many ways, very similar to other poor families who do not become homeless. While family homelessness is more prevalent then many think, it is possible to greatly decrease and end family homelessness.

Solutions Brief  |  January 19, 2007
This two-page brief highlights three cities - New York, NY, Denver, CO, and Portland, OR - that have done studies of the cost effectiveness of providing supportive housing for homeless people with mental illness and/or addictions. The studies demonstrate that the cost of providing supportive housing is about the same or less than the cost of allowing them to remain homeless.

Homelessness is one of our nation’s most misunderstood and vexing social problems. Because homelessness is complex, it is often difficult for the media to cover the issue with the background and nuance necessary to capture the full picture, particularly for stories that are time sensitive. This guide aims to streamline this process by providing context and reliable sources for reporters to access quickly. The goal of this guide is to stimulate thoughtful and insightful reporting on a population that is often poorly understood. While typical stories on homelessness often involve local panhandling ordinances or deaths of homeless people caused by extreme weather—valued coverage that brings attention to the issue—these stories can be developed further into examinations of what strategies are effective in ending homelessness, how communities can better address the needs of their homeless population, or how future homelessness can be prevented. In this guide, we present homelessness issues by population. We hope that by providing quick facts, background, and a listing of the most knowledgeable experts, more enriching and informative reporting will result.

Solutions Brief  |  November 27, 2006
Housing First is an approach that centers on providing homeless people with housing quickly and then providing services as needed. What differentiates a Housing First approach from other strategies is that there is an immediate and primary focus on helping individuals and families quickly access and sustain permanent housing. This approach has the benefit of being consistent with what most people experiencing homelessness want and seek help to achieve.
