New Government Report: Costs Associated with First-Time Homelessness for Families and Individuals

Costs Associated with First-Time Homelessness for Families and Individuals
by Brooke Spellman
Paperback, 232 pages, 2010, ISBN: 9781437933890, $20.00

Moving homeless families into permanent housing is significantly cheaper than putting them in emergency shelters, according to a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development study released yesterday, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

This report examines costs associated with the use of homeless and mainstream service delivery systems by families and individuals experiencing homelessness for the first time in six study communities.

Assigning costs to public programs is a first step toward developing measures of the value of public interventions compared to the public costs incurred by ignoring or avoiding the problems those interventions are intended to address.

The study finds that the experience of homelessness is diverse and the associated costs vary tremendously depending on the pattern of homelessness and family or individual status.

It is not, however, a study of either cost-effectiveness or quality of care, but rather a calculation of costs associated with homelessness. Illustrations.
