  • Homelessness as a Moving Target
    • Authors: Barrett A. Lee, Marybeth Shinn, Dennis P. Culhane
      Pages: 8 - 26
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 8-26, January 2021.
      Contrary to popular perceptions of homelessness as a static, enduring condition, we emphasize its dynamic nature. The updated macro-micro framework that we develop capitalizes on the increasing availability of over-time data, which makes it easier to examine changes in homelessness and the factors responsible for them. Our framework integrates structural forces—such as income inequality, an affordable housing shortage, social exclusion, and inadequate safety net programs—with the personal circumstances and challenges that shape individuals’ homeless trajectories. The macro-micro perspective also helps us to evaluate the effectiveness of policies, and it highlights variation across contexts in how the dynamics of homelessness operate. In a separate section, we introduce the sixteen core articles of this volume against the macro-micro backdrop. Finally, we discuss two emergent macro “shocks” (the COVID-19 pandemic and climate-related hazards) that are largely absent from the volume but carry important implications for understanding and addressing homelessness in the future.

  • A Rising Tide Drowns Unstable Boats: How Inequality Creates Homelessness
    • Authors: Thomas H. Byrne, Benjamin F. Henwood, Anthony W. Orlando
      Pages: 28 - 45
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 28-45, January 2021.
      Is income inequality a driver of homelessness at the community level' We theorize that inequality affects homelessness both by crowding out low-income households from the rental market (what we call an “income channel”) and by causing home prices to rise (a “price channel”). We construct a dataset of information on inequality, homelessness, rent burden, and housing prices in 239 communities from 2007 to 2018 and use it to assess the income inequality–homelessness relationship. Our results suggest that income inequality is a significant driver of community homelessness and that the “income channel” is the more likely mechanism through which homelessness is created. We argue that broader policy efforts to reduce income inequality are likely to have the collateral effect of reducing homelessness, and we discuss the need for national and local policies to help low-income households afford housing.

  • Income Support Policies and the Rise of Student and Family Homelessness
    • Authors: Zachary Parolin
      Pages: 46 - 63
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 46-63, January 2021.
      This study investigates whether the generosity and accessibility of publicly provided income support contributes to levels of family homelessness. Using data on student homelessness from most public school districts in the United States, I find that greater access to cash assistance from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program reduces levels of family homelessness and that the reduction is particularly strong for majority–Black and Native American school districts. The results suggest that the observed decline in access to TANF cash assistance may be an important driver of the rise in family homelessness. Evidence is inconclusive about whether greater access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or greater generosity of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) reduces levels of homelessness.

  • The Concentrated Geography of Eviction
    • Authors: Devin Q. Rutan, Matthew Desmond
      Pages: 64 - 81
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 64-81, January 2021.
      Preventing eviction is a tractable, efficient way to reduce homelessness. Doing so requires understanding the precise geography of eviction. Drawing on more than 660,000 eviction records across seventeen cities, this study finds the geography of evictions to be durable across time. Rather than occurring when the status quo is disrupted, through gentrification or other modes of neighborhood change, eviction is itself the status quo in some pockets of American cities. The study shows that a few buildings are responsible for an outsized share of cities’ eviction rates. Focusing on three cities—Cleveland, Ohio; Fayetteville, North Carolina; and Tucson, Arizona—it finds that the one hundred most-evicting parcels account for more than one in six evictions in Cleveland and two in five evictions in Fayetteville and Tucson. Policy-makers looking to prevent homelessness can use the diagnostic tools developed in this study to precisely target high-evicting neighborhoods and buildings.

  • Racial Inequity and Homelessness: Findings from the SPARC Study
    • Authors: Jeffrey Olivet, Catriona Wilkey, Molly Richard, Marc Dones, Julia Tripp, Maya Beit-Arie, Svetlana Yampolskaya, Regina Cannon
      Pages: 82 - 100
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 82-100, January 2021.
      This study examines racial inequities and homelessness in the United States through mixed methods research in eight communities. We compare the race and ethnicity of those experiencing homelessness to the general population and to people in poverty, and we also explore how race and ethnicity are associated with housing outcomes. Interviews with 195 individuals of color explore pathways into homelessness and drivers of outcomes. We find that Black/African Americans and Native Americans were the most overrepresented among those experiencing homelessness in each community, and interview data suggest that factors associated with homelessness for people of color include barriers to housing and economic mobility, racism and discrimination within homeless services, and involvement in multiple systems, including criminal justice. How race and ethnicity were associated with outcomes varied for youth, single adults, and families. We argue that researchers and policy-makers need to address homelessness with attention to racial justice.

  • Housing Trajectories, Risk Factors, and Resources among Individuals Who
           Are Homeless or Precariously Housed

      Pages: 102 - 122
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 102-122, January 2021.
      This study identifies time-patterned trajectories of housing stability among homeless and vulnerably housed individuals who participated in a multisite four-year longitudinal study in Canada. Findings show four distinct trajectories for the homeless and vulnerably housed: high levels of sustained housing stability, improving levels over time leading to high levels of housing stability, decreasing levels of housing stability over time, and low levels of housing stability over time. The presence of resources rather than risk factors differentiated the trajectories of participants who achieved housing stability from those who had low levels of housing stability. Participants who had better housing stability were more likely to live in subsidized housing. Findings highlight the need for programs and policies directed at addressing the housing affordability problem through income support strategies and the creation of affordable housing.

  • Public Assistance and Homeless Shelter Trajectories
    • Authors: Francisca G.-C. Richter, Claudia Coulton, Robert L. Fischer, Nina Lalich
      Pages: 123 - 140
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 123-140, January 2021.
      We study public assistance participation among homeless shelter users, characterizing the trajectories of public assistance receipt for individuals before and after they enter shelters and analyzing the influence of public assistance participation on subsequent shelter use. Our analysis identifies three distinct groups of shelter users based on personal characteristics and prior patterns of public assistance use. These groups are differentiated by their patterns of no use, increasing use, and high use of public assistance. For all three groups, increased participation in public assistance programs following the first observed homeless shelter entry reduces subsequent shelter use. The analysis draws attention to the potential role of public assistance programs and strengthened coordination of services for the prevention of homelessness.

  • Homelessness among Formerly Incarcerated Men: Patterns and Predictors
    • Authors: Brianna Remster
      Pages: 141 - 157
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 141-157, January 2021.
      This study investigates patterns of homeless shelter use among formerly incarcerated men for nearly eight years postrelease and risk factors associated with pattern variation. I use life course theory and administrative data from Pennsylvania to identify four distinct forms of homelessness among formerly incarcerated men: persistent homelessness beginning soon after release, a short spell of homelessness years after release, long periods of homelessness years after release, and intermittent homelessness. The results also indicate that risk factors such as age, race, drug dependency, and full sentence completion are better at distinguishing whether formerly incarcerated men become homeless than they are at predicting what kind of homelessness the men experience.

  • Putting Homelessness in Context: The Schools and Neighborhoods of Students
           Experiencing Homelessness
    • Authors: Tasminda K. Dhaliwal, Soledad De Gregorio, Ann Owens, Gary Painter
      Pages: 158 - 176
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 158-176, January 2021.
      The number of K–12 students experiencing homelessness is increasing across the country. Schools may serve as sources of support and stability for homeless children, but little is known about the types of schools that homeless students attend or about the communities in which they live. We investigate the context of student homelessness in Los Angeles by analyzing student-level administrative data from the Los Angeles Unified School District and publicly available data on neighborhoods and schools from school years 2008–2009 to 2016–2017. Our findings suggest that homeless students tend to be clustered within lower-achieving schools with higher concentrations of disadvantaged student groups and live in neighborhoods with higher concentrated disadvantage. Despite policy provisions to ensure stability, homeless students have high rates of school and residential mobility in the years they are homeless, and mobile students tend to move to less-disadvantaged schools. We conclude with policy implications to strengthen the implementation of the federal McKinney-Vento Act.

  • Housing First and Severe Mental Disorders: The Challenge of Exiting
           Homelessness

      Pages: 178 - 192
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 178-192, January 2021.
      We examine the long-term housing trajectories of 543 program participants at the Toronto site of the At Home/Chez-Soi project, a randomized controlled trial of a Housing First (HF) intervention for adults with mental disorders. The average follow-up period for our study was 5.5 years. We find that the HF approach, which includes housing subsidies and support services, was strongly associated with rapid transitions to sustained housing (70.4 percent of HF participants vs. 27.9 percent of treatment as usual participants). Mood disorders with psychotic features and primary psychotic disorders were negatively associated with the rapid and sustained housing trajectory, and alcohol use disorders were positively associated with a rapid then declining housing trajectory. We argue that to understand the long-term impacts of housing programs, research needs to better explore comprehensive and personalized care to support individuals with severe mental disorders.

      We investigate whether racial disparities exist among homeless families with priority access to the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. The families we studied moved from emergency shelter into subsidized housing and sometimes left the HCV program, and our results suggest that the HCV program works as well for Black families as it does for White families. The rates at which families used the vouchers to lease a housing unit are similarly high for each group. The rate at which families exit from the HCV program does not differ between White and Black families, but the factors that predict exit do differ by race. For all families, access to a voucher reduces returns to homelessness, doubling up, and moving. These results confirm that in the United States—a country with a history of racial disparities in housing—the HCV program can help alleviate the effects of severe poverty and provide housing opportunities that advantage both White and Black families.

      Permanent supportive housing for families experiencing homelessness—typically, subsidized housing that is not time limited and provides access to a range of support services—has substantially increased over the past 10 years, despite an absence of rigorous evidence of its effectiveness. We examine the benefits of subsidized housing with supportive services compared to subsidized housing alone. Our findings suggest that supportive housing offers more opportunities for access to services and benefits than subsidized housing alone, but it may not be beneficial to families’ housing stability or to family members’ employment or involvement with the criminal justice system. We argue that housing that is coupled with intensive case management, that is service rich, and that provides and adheres to harm reduction principles may help to strengthen supportive housing’s effectiveness.

  • Understanding the Dynamics of Homelessness among Veterans Receiving
           Outpatient Care: Lessons Learned from Universal Screening
    • Authors: Ann Elizabeth Montgomery
      Pages: 230 - 243
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 230-243, January 2021.
      Addressing homelessness among veterans has been a top policy priority for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) since 2009. Part of the multitiered strategy to prevent and end homelessness among veterans was the implementation of a universal screen for housing instability among all veteran outpatients at VA facilities. Data from more than six million veterans responding to this screen have provided insight into veterans’ housing instability, as well as the characteristics of individuals and structural forces that may influence housing insecurity among veterans; the current article synthesizes these findings. Although the universal screen for housing instability has been effective at linking veterans with needed resources, questions remain regarding the best ways to ensure that they remain in safe, affordable, adequate, and permanent housing.

  • Cross-Sector Collaboration to Improve Homeless Services: Addressing
           Capacity, Innovation, and Equity Challenges
    • Authors: Jennifer E. Mosley
      Pages: 246 - 263
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 246-263, January 2021.
      Homeless services are plagued by resource scarcity and fragmentation, making the field a poster child for cross-sector collaboration—a policy trend where nonprofits and government come together to address problems that cannot be solved by one sector alone. The continuum of care (CoC) system mandates this—through coordination, regions are thought to be better able to integrate services to improve homeless outcomes. This study uses qualitative data from eighteen CoC networks to investigate (1) the collaborative challenges that CoCs experience and (2) the role that network managers play in addressing those challenges. Findings indicate three primary challenges: lack of capacity, inability to create momentum around innovative practices, and inequities across service populations. Together, these can affect the trajectories of people who are homeless by making the system less efficient and creating service gaps, but leaders can address them by promoting a collective vision and sharing power.

  • Complaint-Oriented “Services”: Shelters as Tools for
           Criminalizing Homelessness
    • Authors: Chris Herring
      Pages: 264 - 283
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 264-283, January 2021.
      This article argues that the expansion of shelter and welfare provisions for the homeless can lead to increased criminalization of homeless people in public spaces. First, I document how repression of people experiencing homelessness by the police in San Francisco neighborhoods increased immediately after the opening of new shelters. Second, I reveal how shelter beds are used as a privileged tool of the police to arrest, cite, and confiscate property of the unhoused, albeit in the guise of sanitary and public health initiatives. I conclude by considering how shelters increasingly function as complaint-oriented “services,” aimed at addressing the interests of residents, businesses, and politicians, rather than the needs of those unhoused.

  • The Growth and Shifting Spatial Distribution of Tent Encampments in
           Oakland, California
    • Authors: Ryan Finnigan
      Pages: 284 - 300
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 284-300, January 2021.
      Tent encampments have become an especially common form of homelessness in West Coast cities like Oakland, California, where the number of people living in tent encampments increased by 130 percent between 2017 and 2019. Living in tent encampments provides residents both benefits and risks, depending on the encampments’ location, size, and stability. Using data from Google Street Views, I document the growth and spatial dynamics of tent encampments in west and central Oakland over the last decade. The number and size of tent encampments rapidly increased between 2014 and 2019, varying widely in their stability. City interventions like the city’s outdoor transitional housing sites displaced several large tent encampments. Combined with overall tent encampment growth, these displacements dispersed the encampments throughout nearby neighborhoods and other parts of the city.

  • Finding Security on Skid Row: The Positive Role of Organizational and
           Social Ties in Service Hubs in the United States and Japan
    • Authors: Matthew D. Marr
      Pages: 301 - 320
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 301-320, January 2021.
      Service hubs are neighborhoods where homelessness and efforts to address it cluster. Are these “skid rows” jails without bars, or are there ways that service hubs bolster residents’ feelings of security about their lives' To address these questions, I analyze ethnographic interview data from sixty residents of four hubs—Skid Row, Los Angeles; Overtown, Miami; Kamagasaki, Osaka; and San’ya, Tokyo. I find that in these service hubs, residents’ ontological security is supported by a combination of engagement with organizations, access to subsidized housing and income, and ties with family and friends. However, this sense of security can be undermined by negative experiences with police and crime, poor sanitation, welfare and aid bureaucracy, and redevelopment projects. I argue that these threats should be addressed to enhance the strengths of service hubs, which can provide important insights for efforts toward more even geographic distribution of housing and aid.

  • How to Address Homelessness: Reflections from Research
    • Authors: Katherine M. O’Regan, Ingrid Gould Ellen, Sophie House
      Pages: 322 - 332
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 693, Issue 1, Page 322-332, January 2021.
      This commentary considers policy implications of research in this volume and elsewhere, and we emphasize the benefits of policy approaches that move “upstream,” to the prevention of homelessness. Policies that address the structural causes of homelessness, described by numerous articles in this ANNALS volume, are the furthest upstream and may be the most important in eradicating homelessness, and policies aimed at prevention are next. We point out that effective prevention requires targeting those most at risk, and we call for creative use of data and better coordination with institutions and systems that may be able to identify the antecedents to homelessness. We note that currently, the homelessness shelter system is strained, so we argue for a radical rethinking of its role, with a shift of resources to efforts further upstream. The existing racial disparities in both pathways to and incidence of homelessness bring urgency to making more than marginal policy changes.
