5.3 Homelessness Prevention and Diversion

Well-designed homelessness prevention and diversion strategies can provide better options for people seeking shelter, reduce shelter overcrowding, and make existing shelter available to more people who would otherwise live on the streets. Presenters will describe techniques for targeting prevention assistance, identifying diversion possibilities, and facilitating stable shared housing arrangements. The workshop will also explore the impact of effective prevention and diversion strategies on shelter capacity.
