SAMHSA Homelessness Prevention Panel - Guiding Principles and Strategies

In April 2011, leaders from USICH, SAMHSA, and ASPE (Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, HHS) led an expert panel and small group discussion on what is known about homelessness prevention, what can be learned from prevention science in behavioral health care that can be applied to homelessness prevention, and what principles and practices are effective and replicable. USICH created this fact sheet which includes 10 guiding principles on characteristics of successful prevention programs and how they should be implemented.
