Promising evidence from a CSH supportive housing pilot program in New York City led the U.S. Administration for Children and Families’ Children’s Bureau to fund a five-site supportive housing demonstration called “Partnerships to Demonstrate the Effectiveness of Supportive Housing for Families in the Child Welfare System.”
The Urban Institute and Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago have been part of a collaborative effort to evaluate this demonstration. Their evaluations examine how supportive housing affects housing stability, child welfare involvement, and child, parent, and family well-being.
