The Family Permanent Supportive Housing Initiative: Preliminary Findings Report

In March 2003, the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation, the Urban Institute, and Harder+Company launched an evaluation of the Family Permanent Supportive Housing Initiative (FPSHI). This evaluation is designed to assist the foundation in understanding the impact of its innovative approach to meeting the long-term needs of formerly homeless families in permanent supportive housing. While the multiyear evaluation consists of many information-gathering components, this report presents baseline findings from initial interviews with 60 families that were conducted between November 2003 and January 2004, as well as descriptions of four FPSH sites included in the study sample.
