Ending homelessness requires housing combined with the types of services supported by HHS programs. The delivery of treatment and services to persons experiencing homelessness are included in the activities of the Department, both in five programs specifically targeted to homeless individuals and in twelve non-targeted, or mainstream, service delivery programs.
In addition to grant programs and research relevant to homelessness, the Department of Health and Human Services also funds several resource centers and activities that provide valuable information for consumers, providers, and policymakers. Several HHS Operating Divisions also have web pages with agency-specific information related to homelessness.
Research & Publications
In order to develop strategies to effectively provide health and human services to persons experiencing homelessness, the Department must first understand who becomes homeless and understand the service needs of those facing homelessness. Therefore, the Department supports research on homelessness to develop further knowledge and evidence-based practices for the provision of treatment and services, as well as to investigate opportunities to prevent homelessness among vulnerable populations.
