This workshop examined promising emergency assistance strategies to prevent family homelessness as well as approaches that are responsive to the housing needs of families residing in precarious housing situations.  Workshop speakers explored a range of interventions that both help families retain their current housing and re-house families living in doubled up situations or in motels who are at imminent risk of homelessness.
