Lessons in Family Homelessness: Diversion

Published: June 27, 2021

A primary outcome of the 10-year Family Homelessness Initiative is the evolution of Diversion as an approach to help people resolve a housing crisis quickly and permanently. The Diversion model, which Building Changes developed with our county and community partners, addresses critical gaps within homeless systems that left many families without support in their quest for housing. Diversion marshals the strengths of people by proactively helping them identify and secure stable housing through an innovative mix of short-term services and, if needed, one-time financial assistance. Lessons in Family Homelessness: Diversion presents our five tips for implementing Diversion effectively within communities, and features stories and voices of those working in the field.
