The Role of Long-Term, Congregate Transitional Housing in Ending Homelessness

Abstract

Many communities still operate congregate transitional housing programs – defined as facility-based programs that offer housing and services for up to two years to individuals and families experiencing homelessness. This brief summarizes the authors' position on the appropriate use of this approach within the broader context of strategies to end homelessness - which may include domestic violence survivors who may require and prefer the security and onsite services available in congregate housing.
