Benioff Homelessness and Housing Initiative

The Benioff Homelessness and Housing Initiative (BHHI) advances research that informs equitable policy solutions with the goal of preventing and ending homelessness.

The solution to homelessness is housing. BHHI conducts rigorous research on homelessness, health, and housing; translates evidence into policy and practice recommendations; and trains the next generation of researchers to respond to the demands of an evolving field.  

Our projects tackle questions that directly concern policymakers and community partners, as we build the evidence needed to develop and strengthen scalable solutions to homelessness in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, and across the United States.
