Multi-Site Contributions to Homelessness Prevention

The Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) and Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) co-sponsored a four-year program that documented and evaluated strategies to prevent homelessness in individuals with psychiatric and/or substance use disorders. The central component of the program was a innovative cross-site study that used a common interview protocol and measures. The process and challenge of organizing and analyzing data from eight diverse study sites will be discussed and the findings and implications of the cross-site study will be presented
