A Model for Housing Homeless Families
Family Housing Fund, 1999
This report from the Family Housing Fund proposes a shift from transitional to supportive housing in the fight against homelessness. In particular, the researcher argues for an increase in supportive housing for families in Minnesota’s Twin Cities. The article offers an extensive overview of supportive housing development and its overall benefits. It outlines three major models for family supportive housing: housing for chronically homeless families, housing for episodically homeless families and outreach support services for families at risk of homelessness. The author closes with a call to develop a comprehensive supportive housing system for families in the Twin Cities.
