International Alliance to End Homelessness

The mission of the IAEH is to assist and enhance the work of national governments, local communities, and nonprofits to end homelessness through a shared passion and commitment to high quality policy, practice and research.

In March 2011 a group of homelessness researchers, policymakers, and practitioners from Australia, Canada, the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States came together in Washington DC to form an International Alliance to End Homelessness (IAEH). The goal of the new organization is to facilitate systematic and productive sharing of information about what works to end homelessness.

National and local governments and the private sector have increasingly set the goal of ending homelessness. They are making significant investments to achieve this goal. An international exchange of conceptual frameworks, sound research and evidence, as well as practical and policy interventions will assist them.

The International Alliance to End Homelessness seeks to do the following things:

  • IAEH will establish an international research agenda around homelessness. It will also seek to improve the comparability of homelessness data across nations by creating common definitions and collection methods.
  • IAEH will focus on examining and promoting best practices in the following policy areas: targeting, creation of homeless systems, migration, accessing mainstream assistance, and outcomes.
  • IAEH will focus on examining and promoting best practices in the following practice areas: affordable housing, homeless youth, services, Housing First, and employment.
