Closer to Home: Policy Implications


This report covers policy implocation sthat arose from the Closer to Home Initiative, a program developed by the CSH and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to foster new approaches to helping homeless people with multiple problems and disabilities.

The research focuses on six programs that aim to engage and house people whose combinations of disabilities, long histories of homelessness, and repeated use of emergency services have marked them as “difficult to serve.” The study was designed to describe the program models, document their implementation and development over time, and assess outcomes achieved by an initial cohort of individuals. We report here the findings and conclusions of this research.
