HUD and HHS Research Symposium Papers Available

We received an email from NAEH last week announcing that the 2007 National Symposium on Homelessness Research papers were now available. The National Symposium on Homelessness Research was held on March 1-2, and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This was the second National Symposium on Homelessness Research. The 2007 Symposium focused on lessons learned from research and practice. Teams of authors consisting of leading researchers and practitioners were commissioned to prepare 12 papers for discussion at the Symposium, all of which are now available to the public.
