How to Prevent and End Homelessness Among Older Adults

Fund Permanent Supportive Housing

How to Prevent and End Homelessness Among Older AdultsMore older adults are homeless or at risk of homelessness than at any time in recent history. As the population ages, more adults are aging into poverty.

The lack of affordable housing and higher costs for health care and other necessities are also leaving greater numbers of older adults at risk of poverty and homelessness.

A Special Report by Justice in Aging, How to Prevent and End Homelessness Among Older Adults, created in partnership with The National Alliance to End Homelessness, outlines the problem and recommends policy solutions that can be put in place now to ensure that all older adults have a safe place to age in dignity, with affordable health care, and sufficient income to meet their basic needs.

A key recommendation of the report is to fund and develop sufficient permanent supportive housing for currently homeless older adults and those who are likely to experience chronic homelessness.
