AAPSS Webinar on 11/10: The End of Family Homelessness?

Please join the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) for The End of Family Homelessness? Evidence and Analysis for Stronger Policy, a webinar and discussion based on a recent volume of the ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, aiming to review key insights from new and existing research that can provide guidance for homelessness policies and state and local interventions.

Moderator: Dennis Culhane, University of Pennsylvania


  • Marc Dones, King County Regional Homelessness Authority

  • Chris Herring, Harvard University and University of California-Los Angeles

  • Sharon McDonald, National Alliance to End Homelessness

  • Zach Parolin, Bocconi University and Columbia University

  • Beth Shinn, Vanderbilt University

Among the questions to be asked are: What insights from research are most helpful in understanding the dynamic nature of homelessness? How does it affect individuals and families? How does it shape (and how is it shaped by) socio-demographic inequality in America? How do public policy and local interventions mitigate or exacerbate the crisis? Do American cities have within their grasp an opportunity to end family homelessness? What practical and strategic approaches might help address the increase in unsheltered homelessness?
