This study adds a child component to an intervention evaluation funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. 2,400 homeless families with over 5,000 children across 12 sites are assigned to either usual care (little more than shelter) or one of three interventions: ongoing subsidies with no services beyond lease-up, community-based rapid re-housing (temporary subsidies with housing-related services), and program-based transitional housing with intensive social services. Assessments are collected from caregivers, direct observation, and interviews of older children. Data include child health and development, achievement, behavioral problems, school outcomes, and school environment.
