Research & Evaluation

The National Center on Family Homelessness' state-of-the-art research focuses on understanding homelessness and the related issues of extreme poverty, housing, services, interpersonal violence, mental health, substance abuse, and trauma. We rigorously evaluate our own programs and services, and those developed by others, to maximize the immediate and long-term benefits to families and children. As we study the causes and consequences of homelessness, we learn more about its devastating effects - and how to prevent and end it.
