Evaluation of Homelessness Service Integration Demonstration Project

This project involves an ‘integrated case management’ (ICM) approach to reduce the incidence of homelessness. This approach involves multi-agency case management and may comprise a number of structures and processes including a service integration coordinator, regular multi-agency meetings, client outreach, combined training, common information systems and close monitoring of client outcomes. By examining the processes followed, the issues encountered, and the successes achieved, a greater understanding of the potential role of this approach in reducing the incidence of homelessness in other contexts can be achieved.
