Homelessness among individual adults has only decreased by 1 percent in the past five years. One likely reason is the failure to adequately invest in rapid re-housing (RRH) for this population. While there are RRH resources for 1 of every 3 homeless people in families, there is only RRH for 1 of every 11 homeless individual adults.
This upcoming Alliance webinar will explore the important role emergency shelters play in implementing diversion strategies to keep people out of homelessness. Alliance and provider experts will discuss the difference between prevention and diversion and hone in on strategies for identifying safe, appropriate alternatives to shelter.
