Summary:"This Almanac is the result of three years of intensive review and evaluation, resulting in a comprehensive resource that presents data, policy analysis, and model programs and policies at the national, state, and local levels. It examines not only what we know about family homelessness, but also what we do not know, in order to both encourage the greater use of evidence-based practices and improve data collection" (p. iii).
"The Almanac provides policymakers, administrators, service providers, advocacy groups, researchers, and concerned citizens with a comprehensive resource that highlights what existing data reveal about homeless families and the programs that serve them -- and where gaps exist in knowledge and data collection. Within these pages, readers will find reports on the multitude of issues affecting homeless families and their children nationally; state-by-state statistics about those families and programs designed to help them; and snapshots of innovative funding strategies and model programs at the federal, state, and local levels that provide for the healthy development and educational success of homeless children" (p. v).
