The Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) is a leader in community efforts improving lives for low-income people and those struggling with homelessness. This project produced a study that analyzed the costs expended each year by community stakeholders which could be impacted by housing. The report also gave recommendations for alternative models like the Housing First Model which connects homeless persons with stable housing and supportive services and costs approximately $11,860 per household annually. Importantly, the report has been shared with statewide providers and has been used as part of our Housing and Healthcare Initiative.
