Focus Ireland’s “Looking beyond the Homeless Crisis Lecture Series” will be launched on tpday Monday 23rd April 2018 and will feature the eminent homelessness researcher Prof. Dennis Culhane (University of Pennsylvania) who will present his paper “Adult Homelessness: Risk Period or Cohort Effect? Implications for Policy and Practice.”
Through the examination of large-scale quantitative evidence, this paper will demonstrate how many people who become homeless during a housing and homelessness crisis can ‘become stuck’ in homelessness for some time. Anticipatory planning is needed to ensure that appropriate and targeted interventions can address these issues effectively and in a timely manner.
