The Relationship Between Foster Care and Homelessness

 

Web of Failure

This 1995 report from the National Alliance to End Homelessness examines the connection between foster care and homelessness to determine whether or not there is an over-representation of people with a foster care history in the homeless population. The project used four sources of information:

  1. Existing research on the connection between foster care and homelessness;
  2. Data collected from organizations which serve homeless people and which gather information on their clients' foster care history;
  3. Data obtained directly from a sample of homeless people; and
  4. Case studies of people who are or were homeless and who have a foster care history.
