Homeless Families Research Briefs (HHS)

This series of research briefs from HHS's Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation highlights issues related to the well-being and economic self-sufficiency of families and children experiencing homelessness.

The briefs are based on data collected as part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Family Options Study, a multi-site random assignment experiment designed to study the impact of various housing and services interventions on families experiencing homelessness.
