Reports created or co-created by the Network
For over 20 years, the Network has served as the hub for New York’s nonprofit supportive housing community -- connecting providers, government agencies and the private sector. This unique vantage point has allowed the Network to conduct and publish original research to reflect the totality of New York supportive housing. The Network maintains the only comprehensive database on the state’s 50,000 units of supportive housing. With this information, it seeks to advance the conversation about supportive housing through concrete reliable data. In addition, the Network also collects and disseminates original research with direct implications for supportive housing.
Below, you’ll find a collection of research reports, surveys and other studies produced by the Network and other supportive housing stakeholders.
