The Issue

…people in families with children who are living without a home. Early estimates suggest an addition 250,000 people will experience homelessness due to COVID-19 related unemployment and recession.

Since 2009 the number of veterans experiencing homelessness declined by 50%. About 35,000 unaccompanied…

Imagining a new system for land use and zoning

…or afford quality housing in flourishing communities. As a result, there are significant racial disparities in who becomes homeless, pays more than 30% of their income on rent, lives far away from good jobs and schools, and gets evicted.

Four Strategies for Improving Homeless Service & Workforce Systems Collaboration

…work by creating opportunities for information sharing and joint-decision-making. Dedicate Resources and Increase Accountability Neither system is sufficiently funded or held accountable for meeting the employment needs of homeless and unstably housed jobseekers. This lack of “carrots and sticks” undermines collaboration. Without dedicated money for these jobseekers, local workforce and homeless service stakeholders will struggle to develop or scale employment programming. What’s more, without robust…

A Personal Reflection by Melville Trust President Susan Thomas

…place” and the 1 out of 5 Black households that do not have enough to eat. I wish they would be just as incredulous about the 6 million households who make less than $15,000 a year and pay half of that income on rent alone.

Housing is Healthcare and Connecticut Needs More of It

…cannot apply for food stamps or unemployment assistance without an address, and securing a job is next to impossible. Our home is our refuge, our source of security and solace.

Our New Strategy

…U.S. population but account for 40% of all people living without a home, and landlords file evictions against Black renters at nearly double the rate of white renters. When we thought deeply about the populations most impacted and examined the root causes of these disparities, we recognized that we will never end homelessness if we do not focus on BIPOC with extremely low incomes. Therefore,…

The Impossible (And Necessary) Task of Counting Homeless Youths

Ending Homelessness for LGBTQ Youth: A Conversation with Ryan Berg

I was halfway through a chapter of No House to Call My Home, when my train arrived at Harvard Square. I had a dentist appointment I couldn’t miss and a lump in my throat that I couldn’t shake. After my cleaning was over and before going back to work, I ducked into Peet’s Coffee for 10 minutes to finish the chapter. No House to Call…

Today is 40 to None Day, a national day to raise public awareness about LGBTQ youth homelessness organized by our friends at the True Colors Fund. With the recent wave…

Big Data: A Key Part of Ending Homelessness in Connecticut

Our local sandwich shop just got one of these very futuristic looking machines. Unlike the old days when you could only pick one flavor of soda, this machine lets you customize a drink from 100 different choices. But what’s fascinating to me (beyond the fact that the company used technology originally developed to deliver precise doses of medicine to cancer and dialysis patients) is what…

…for Artemis, a researcher with the Youth Action Hub (YAH), this work is anything but academic. Two years ago she was homeless herself, bouncing from couch to couch, and eventually in the dead of winter, sleeping in her car.
