Homelessness Prevention

Prevention means stopping someone from becoming homeless in the first place. Homelessness prevention must include broader structural reforms addressing the drivers of homelessness, not only interventions targeted at individuals.

UCSF BHHI’s homelessness prevention research highlights the interventions, policies, and practices that reduce the likelihood of someone experiencing homelessness. Our work identifies structural barriers and outlines policies to address the lack of housing while providing the support necessary to ultimately reduce the risk of recurring homelessness.
