Homelessness Resource Center

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently launched a new web site for providers who work with people who are homeless. 

The Homelessness Resource Center web site "shares state-of-the art knowledge, evidence-based practices and practical resources.  It provides an interactive learning community for researchers, providers, consumers, and Government agencies at all levels. 

  • It is an easy-to-manage resource with content that informs, features that engage, and training that is useful.  These elements are brought together to promote recovery-oriented and consumer-centered services for people who are homeless." 
  • Recognizing that youth ages 18-24 are the fastest growing segment of the homeless populations, at 12 percent, and may be more at-risk for homelessness that other age groups, the web site includes many youth-related resources.
