Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
At Home, a new quarterly e-newsletter originated by Abt Associates’ Housing and Communities Practice, debuted June 11. The e-newsletter offers expert insights and the latest research findings on housing and community development issues.
The idea for the e-newsletter evolved earlier in the year when Mary Joel Holin, Housing and Communities Practice Leader, and her team decided that there was an information gap to fill. “We wanted to give people interested in housing and community development issues a chance to learn about the results of our research and new thinking among our experts on relevant topics,” Holin said.
The current issue of At Home focuses on innovative approaches to linking services with housing supports to prevent and end family homelessness, various ways to assist with housing recovery after disasters and the costs to revitalize public housing.
