Individual Homelessness Drivers


When Housing is Out of Reach

More than at any other time, there is a lack of housing that low income people can afford. Without housing options, people face eviction, instability and homelessness.

Income and Housing Affordability

Low income households often do not earn enough to pay for food, clothing, transportation and a place they can call home.

Connecting Homelessness and Health

Health and homelessness are inextricably linked. Health problems can cause a person’s homelessness as well as be exacerbated by the experience. Housing is key to addressing the health needs of people experiencing homelessness.

Escaping Violence

Many survivors of domestic violence become homeless when leaving an abusive relationship.

Impact of Racial Disparities

Most minority groups in the United States experience homelessness at higher rates than Whites, and therefore make up a disproportionate share of the homeless population.

The Continuum’s providers work with individuals and families from the moment they seek assistance. This collaboration starts with the assessment process to understand the needs of the individual or family and what actions and resources are necessary to achieve housing. This image shows the steps of the process from outreach and coordinated entry through permanent supportive housing. We work to produce the highest outcomes while using minimal resources, all while remaining focused on the longterm success of the individual or family.
