The homelessness response system in the United States is dominated by
the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD’s
definition of homelessness, program models, metrics, data, approaches,
and goals have overshadowed those of other federal agencies. This policy
brief argues that children, youth, and families experiencing
homelessness have been poorly served by HUD’s dominance, especially
during the COVID-19 pandemic.The paper draws from research, policy analyses, and testimonies of
parents, service providers, and educators to make the case for a
reimagined homelessness response that is child-centered and oriented
toward long-term goals of economic independence, health, and wellness.
