Helping America's homeless : emergency shelter or affordable housing?( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homelessness has now been on the American policy agenda for close to two decades. In 1989, when the Urban Institute published "America's Homeless", by Martha Burt and Barbara Cohen, policymakers and the public may have hoped that we could end the crisis relatively quickly. The arrival of the new millennium has not fulfilled that expectation. In this new volume, "Helping America's Homeless", Martha Burt and coauthors return to the problem with the most in-depth analysis of homelessness that has ever been published. Drawing on data from the National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers and Clients (NSHAPC), and extending their pioneering work, the authors examine every aspect of homelessness in America, from how many homeless people there are, where they are, and why they became homeless, to how long their homelessness lasts. They explore the programs that provide assistance to the homeless, and how they are configured within communities of different sizes. Finally, the authors look at how policymakers have approached this problem, and our prospects for solving the crisis in the new millennium

The rising poverty and unemployment rates triggered by the recession are stark reminders of the need for a secure social safety net.

Strategies for preventing homelessness by Martha R Burt( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HUD commissioned an exploratory study to identify and document communities that have implemented effective and well-targeted community-wide homelessness prevention strategies and data to document their effectiveness. This study documents these approaches in six communities with the hope that other communities might learn how to carry out similar efforts. The study identified a number of elements that could contribute to homelessness prevention, as well as a number of promising prevention activities that could be used alone or in combination as part of a coherent community-wide strategy. The promising prevention activities include: (1) supportive services coupled with permanent housing, particularly when combined with effective discharge from institutions, especially mental hospitals; (2) mediation in Housing Courts; (3) cash assistance for rent or mortgage arrears; and (4) rapid exit from shelter
