logoHomelessness in America has decreased but there is still work to be done. What’s the evidence on what works to prevent people from becoming homeless? What have we learned from the field?

Abt Associates’ Center for Evidence-based Solutions to Homelessness hosted a webinar marrying evidence and real-world insight. Marybeth Shinn, the primary author of a new literature synthesis on homelessness prevention, reviewed what we have learned from the research. Practitioners from three communities discussed their experience planning or implementing prevention activities, and how the evidence aligned with their work on the ground.
