The median time families were homeless prior to being housed through the FSH program increased from 3.5 months in SFY 2017 to nearly 7 months in SFY 2018. FSH is both enrolling families with a longer history of homelessness and providers also remain challenged to quickly re-house families in affordable, safe housing.
Median time families were homeless prior to being housed through the FSH program was approximately 3.5 months, a decrease from 4 months in SFY2016 and 6 months in SFY 2015.
This was identified as a major area needing improvement by the evaluation of the FSH program results of SFY 2015. Improvement is credited to concerted effort to build stronger relationships with housing partners.
