What Really Works in Homelessness Prevention: Lessons from Literature and the Field

Homelessness 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?

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