2008 Annual Homelessness Assessment: Report to Congress
Shaun Donovan (pf); Jill Khadduri (ed); Dennis Culhane (ed)
This report, the 4th in a series of annual reports about homelessness in the U.S., breaks new ground by being the first report to provide year-to-year trend information that explores changes in the patterns of homelessness over time. The report focuses on two types of national estimates of homelessness. Point-in-time estimates provide the total number of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single-night in January. These estimates are based on local community counts of homeless persons, and the report compares point-in-time estimates for 2006 through 2008. The report also provides one-year estimates of the total sheltered population based on information from local Homeless Management Information Systems. The one-year estimates account for persons who used a homeless residential program at any time during a 12-month period. The report compares one-year estimates for 2007 and 2008. This report comes at a time of economic uncertainty and provides a few early indicators of how the economic downturn may be affecting the housing situation of low-income and vulnerable Americans. In these times, it is especially important to have comprehensive information about people who have become homeless. This latest report will be important in informing policy decisions and developing new strategies to prevent homelessness and assure decent affordable housing for our citizens. Figures.
