U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 2006

This study from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) explores the reasons why people with serious mental illness would choose to leave supportive housing. The researchers focus their report on city- and federally-assisted supportive housing programs in Philadelphia. The study’s findings are complex, though researchers definitively found no major demographic differences between those who remain in supportive housing and those who leave. The report was prepared for HUD by Yin-Ling Irene Wong, Trevor R. Hadley, Dennis P. Culhane, Steve R. Poulin, Morris R. Davis, Brian A. Cirksey and James L. Brown.
