Identifying Systems Upstream that Lead to the Inflow of Homeless Veterans
Through the analysis of qualitative and quantitative data from at least 17 communities, Community Solutions seeks to identify trends around upstream generators of veteran homelessness. Afterward, we will develop and test interventions alongside community leaders that reduce the inflow of homeless veterans to the point where it exceeds outflow, placing communities on track to ending homelessness. We hope to share the design and preliminary findings of our research.
