Which Rules are the Right Rules for Low-Barrier Emergency Shelters?
How can shelters that serve families and survivors of domestic violence maintain a low-barrier environment that prioritizes safety for participants and staff?

NEW INTERACTIVE MAP SHOWS RATE OF HOMELESSNESS IN MAJOR METRO AREAS
The majority of people experiencing homelessness on a given night are in the nation’s 25 most populous metropolitan areas. A new interactive resource from the Alliance’s Homelessness Research Institute allows users to take a market-by-market view of homelessness in each area.
Users can analyze a variety of data in each market, including the total rate of homelessness; and the size of the sheltered and unsheltered populations for family, individual, youth, veteran, and chronically homeless populations. Because counts of people experiencing homelessness do not generally align with metropolitan areas, these estimates provide a helpful way of comparing between major metro areas.
