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

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 663 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. Such programs should provide economic security, protect vulnerable families, and promote equality-but the United States falls behind other countries in accomplishing these goals. In Repairing the U.S. Social Safety Net, Martha R. Burt and Demetra Smith Nightingale encourage strengthening the safety net and making a national commitment to end poverty

Rapid re-housing for homeless families demonstration programs evaluation report : part II: demonstration findings -- outcomes evaluation by Martha R Burt( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rapid re-housing is a homeless assistance strategy that provides homeless families with immediate, temporary assistance to help them return to permanent housing and to promote their housing and economic stability. In 2007, in response to the growing emphasis on rapid re-housing, the U.S. Congress appropriated $23.75 million for the Rapid Re-housing for Homeless Families Demonstration (RRHD) program. As part of its 2008 competitive application for McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act funding, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded RRHD grants to 23 communities to serve homeless families with moderate barriers to housing. Along with appropriating the RRHD funding, Congress mandated an evaluation of RRHD activities and their effect on families. This report describes the findings of that evaluation's first phase, a process evaluation examining how programs were designed and how they are being implemented. The findings were distilled from information gained during site visits or intensive phone interviews with all 23 RRHD grantees conducted between February and May 2011

Strategies for preventing homelessness by Martha R Burt( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 192 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
