Impacts of the High-Needs Families Model: A Summary of Evaluation Findings

Published: July 13, 2017

Building Changes developed and supported the High-Needs Families (HNF) model, a specialized type of Permanent Supportive Housing offering families with histories of homelessness a stable place to live, as well as intensive case management and ongoing supportive services. Westat, a national research firm, conducted a multi-year evaluation of the model to help us better understand the needs and experiences of the families being served. Our report, Impacts of the High-Needs Families Model, summarizes Westat’s findings on family outcomes related to: health care use; behavioral health care; family stability and child welfare involvement; income and employment; and criminal justice involvement.
