Services Matter for Families and Children

How we can end family homelessness

After 30 years of research and innovation, we know how to end family homelessness. However, federal policy is still dictated by insufficient resources and ignores the need to support families with permanent housing combined with essential services.

Services Matter was prepared by the Bassuk Center to offer effective solutions. Our report is based on research, field experience, and local provider perspectives. Please download and read, and let us know what you think. We hope you will join us in declaring that services matter for families experiencing homelessness.
