The Departments of Health and Human Services and Housing and Urban Development have jointly posted the following report to their respective websites: Toward Understanding Homelessness: The 2007 National Symposium on Homelessness Research. This report includes twelve bibliographical papers from invited authors on the latest findings from homeless research and the implications of those findings for policy and practice. Topics include, for example, housing models, homeless families and children, and chronic homelessness. The papers, the products of invited authors, were presented and discussed at a symposium of researchers, policy experts, practitioners, and consumers held in Washington, D.C. in March 2007. The papers reflect a review of the 10 years of research since the two departments jointly published Practical Lessons: The 1998 National Symposium on Homelessness Research.
