Research 

  • What Housing First Means for People: Results of 2007 Post-Occupancy Research
    This report presents findings from a survey of 88 formerly homeless people housed through Streets to Homes and contributes to the growing literature on the impacts of a Housing First approach to ending homelessness. It found that homeless people housed directly from the street can keep their housing with the appropriate supports in place. It also has client perspectives on the housing process, the supports they received, and changes to quality of life indicators.
